Great Northern Bicycle Co. (GNB), Great Rides and The Arts Partnership (TAP) are seeking visual artists to submit their proposals for “arting up” bikes for the Roll On, Art! program.
Roll On, Art! will give Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo artists the opportunity to transform three Specialized bikes into usable pieces of art that will be auctioned off later this summer (information tbd on location, etc). All proceeds will be split evenly between Great Rides, TAP and the artist.
Selected Artists will be given one bike (retail value $550) from Great Northern Bicycles and a $100 stipend from The Arts Partnership to purchase supplies. Additionally, GNB will assist in mechanical support (such as a tear-down and rebuild of the bikes for selected artists). See more info and spec information here and here.
This program is intended to highlight, encourage and promote local artists by giving them the opportunity to present their artwork on these three bicycles
A sub-committee will review the applications for consideration. Once the sub-committee approves the design, selected artists will each receive a bicycle and the $100 stipend upon completion of an art release/waiver.
GNB, Great Rides and/or TAP has the right to decline all submissions and retract this call for entries for any reason at any time.
How to Submit:
Submit a drawing(s) of your idea to “art up” the bike. This does not need to be a completed design, but it should be clear enough that the judges can adequately understand your overall artistic intention. The more detail you can provide, the easier it will be to make a selection.
Fill out this form and scan or send it back.
