Juried Small Group Exhibition!

UPDATED Deadline for artist to apply: May 12, 2023

Resource Depot is looking for eight (8) artist/makers to upcycle eight (8) bikes reclaimed bikes from Resource Depot to create bike-themed artwork from the bikes and bike parts.  Artists may choose to still keep their form and/or function as a bicycle or upcycle them into new works of kinetic art.  Experience working in three-dimensions, especially restoring bicycles or cars is a plus, but not necessary.  Ultimately, we are looking for artists who demonstrate creativity and craftsmanship in their existing body of work and are poised to accept this challenge to give these bikes a new life for this Up-Cycled exhibition.

Accepted artists will receive a $500 stiped to use for the upcycling of these bikes (examples below). All works of art will be on sale during the exhibition, with 40% of sales to Resource Depot and 60% to the artists. Proceeds go to support our mission and education programs.

Click for some idea fuel, but skies the limit! We will require a rough idea from accepted artists, but welcome with your 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
