Velo Art Contest

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.

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

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.

Birth of an Orca

This Orca whale sculpture will be auctioned off during our Open House on Dec. 8. It was made by Carter Wall. Carter has made a sculpture for every Velo Art Contest to date.
