Art Contest

Velo Arte Contest

Register now through Sept. 26

Sharing Wheels has been collecting a fascinating assortment of miscellaneous bike things since we started in 2002. It’s time to get creative!

For a $20 entrance fee, local artists and community members can select from a variety of our new and old bike parts – rusty or shiny – with the goal of creating something beautiful, functional, fun or fantastical. Children under 13 can participate for $10.

Register by Sept. 26.

Funds support Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop, and the fun is yours. Whatever you make will be displayed on social media and/or in Everett for public voting via social media. The grand prize is a $200 Sharing Wheels gift certificate (and 15-minutes of fame). Other awards are TBD, but there may be multiple categories for participants.
