Can’t get enough of Uncontainable? Missed part of the live event? Relive this amazing and inspiring experience at, where you’ll find event highlights, extras, and full coverage of The Ultimate Art Challenge that took place October 16, 2015, in Austin, Texas.

To recap, for this event, eight students from The Art Institutes system of schools were split into teams AiEast and AiWest, based on the location of their schools. With YouTube stars Anna Akana and Connor Franta as their team coaches, the two teams met with local artists and creative mentors as they began to build plans for their shipping containers.

The live competition kicked off at noon CST on October 16, and each team had just 12 hours to turn an empty, nondescript shipping container into an innovative work of art. Luckily for you, our cameras were there every step of the way, not only catching all of the action in and around the containers, but also what was happening on stage and even in the food trucks!

In addition to the big reveal of the winning team, here’s just a peek at what you can find online:

  • A timelapse of the full 12 hours in the container
  • Interviews with each judge
  • Coaches checking in with their teams and the judges as the hours pass
  • On-stage, individual team member faceoffs
  • 4- to 5-minute video profiles of every team member
  • Surprise visitors who showed up during the event
  • Musical performances
  • Teams AiEast and AiWest meeting with high school art students
  • Much, much more!

In the end, we think both teams proved to be Uncontainable, but don’t take our word for it. Decide for yourself at!
