Velo Art Contest

Make ‘Wheel Art’ with Sharing Wheels

This year’s Velo Art Contest is for “Wheel” artists of all kinds – amateurs, professionals, families and groups.

Your art can be fun or functional, beautiful or goofy.

We’ve got plenty of excess bike parts for you to create your art – wheels, bolts, bars, bike frames. Pickup parts from the shop Nov. 9 – 19.

Or use your own upcycled materials or imagination. Any art piece containing bike parts or imagery is eligible to enter.

All artwork will be displayed at our Dec. 8 Open House. Attendees will vote for their favorite “wheel art.”

Artists may donate your piece to a silent auction to take place during the Open House. Last year’s auction raised $544 for Sharing Wheels.
