2023 PedalArt Poster Show
May 12th - 6 to 9pm
Sponsored by Confluence Brewing Company
After days of review, emails, text exchanges, phone calls, and a Mainframe Studios gathering for final consideration…
…we are proud to reveal the artist roster for the 13th Annual PedalArt Poster Show.
We want to thank everyone who answered the Call for Entries. There were no easy decisions for the judges. We've assembled a mix of returning artists and a first-time PedalArt participants; about one-third of the selected artists are new to the show.
So, without further ado, here are your 2023 PedalArt Poster Show Artists.
Our goal for every show is to assemble an artist roster with a mix of show veterans and new talent to keep PedalArt growing and evolving. This year, not quite half of the artists were first-time applicants to the show. Unfortunately, this means that people who’ve done excellent work aren’t on this year’s list.
Special thanks to this year’s judges: John Bosley, owner of Bozz Prints in Valley Junction, Sally Cooper-Smith, Cooper Smith + Company, and Neil Ward, assistant professor of art and design at Drake University.
Nearly 200 Iowa artists have participated in PedalArt. The gallery below is a sampling of posters from 28 artists.
PedalArt has been the best-attended Bike Month event in past years, drawing more than 500 bicycling enthusiasts eager to support our friends in the Iowa art community. When you buy PedalArt posters, you support hardworking, bike-loving independent Iowa artists, designers, and illustrators and Street Collective programing.
