Juried Group Upcycled Bicycle Exhibition!

Show dates – May 19, 2023 – September 9, 2023

To honor and encourage bicycle riding we are hosting an upcycled bicycle exhibition and looking for artist/makers to upcycle the 8 bikes we have.

We would like them to still be able to function as a bicycle but become moving works of art. Experience restoring Bicycles or cars would be a plus. $500 stipend will be given to accepted artist/maker to use for the upcycling of these bikes. The bicycles will be auctioned off at the closing of the exhibition and artists will get 40% of the sale. Proceeds go to support our mission and education.

We are looking for creative ways to give these bikes a new life, and live beyond the exhibition. Could the bike be made even more functional or eco-friendly as well as visually pleasing?  Click for some idea fuel, but skies the limit! We would like a rough idea submitted with application. 

Entry Requirements:  

  • New or established artist with quality artwork.
  • Experience in in metal working or restoration a plus 
  • Completed application 
  • Openness to reuse materials in bike art

Deadline for artist to apply Sunday, December 11, by 11:59 PM
