Each team will be assigned a unique hashtag on Twitter and guests will be encouraged to take pictures or retweet their favorite team during the event. At a certain time, the team with the most retweets, or most tweets with that unique hashtag will be declared the winner. The pieces will be offered for sale with a price tag of $3,000 and remain in the venue throughout the summer. The winners will also be invited to help curate future events and showcases at the venue.
