Calling all artists who love bikes for Spokes & Ink 2012

June 27, 2012


The Genesee Center for the Arts & Education is proud to announce the second annual Spokes & Ink Bike and Poster Fest. After a great showing last year, the training wheels are off and we’re gearing up for another wild ride. And key to the festival’s success is you. Whether you’re a local artist, bike enthusiast, or both, we invite you to share your passion for Rochester’s cycling culture while supporting our thriving art scene. It’s a great opportunity to showcase your original art and become a part of a growing summer tradition full of bikes, brews, and beats.

All you have to do is create an original poster, with a few rules: it has to be larger than a stamp, smaller than a billboard, and inspired by cycling in some way. Then submit a comp online by August 1. Submissions will be juried and those accepted will be featured and sold at the festival for $20. You’ll get $13 and the rest will go to support the Genesee Center for the Arts & Education — a community-based, not-for-profit that educates, encourages, and inspires people to create and enjoy the arts.

Last year’s cycling-inspired posters were truly amazing. And we can’t wait to see yours come to life. You can view last year’s gallery, find all submission info, and learn more by visiting SpokesAndInk.com

So make a poster and make your way to Monroe Ave on August 25 for Spokes & Ink. Hope to see you there.
