The PedalArt Poster show is back for its 12th year! PedalArt is a celebration of local artists and their love of cycling, featuring bicycle and active transportation themed posters designed by Iowa artists. PedalArt is also a fundraiser for the Street Collective, a nonprofit organization that champions and advocates for active transportation options that are accessible, safe, and enjoyable for everyone.
All posters are priced at $35/print.
The artist will receive 60% of the sales from their posters sold and 40% will go to benefit the Street Collective.
2022 Artist Lineup:
Submissions are now CLOSED for the 2022 PedalArt Poster Show. Artists must make an original design and create 21 prints, using the print making style of their choice. Acceptable forms of print include screen printing, letterpress, relief printing, and lithography. Digital prints will be accepted but usually don't sell as well.
*If you’re new to non-digital printmaking, but are still interested in participating, please let us know in your application email. We will be hosting a series of workshops and meetups for participating artists to learn from each other and share resources.
