It's official. We're gonna do this. Bikes and art just naturally go together so why not make it happen at launch? The baskets on 50 Boulder B-cycle bikes will be transformed from advertising space into art space.

Why: Why not? Maybe because we wonder what would happen if people saw more art and fewer ads.

Who: We're looking for Colorado front range artists of all abilities interested in bringing art out of the gallery and onto the streets.

What: Ads2Art is a project designed to turn Boulder, Colorado, bike sharing into the most creative and inspired in the country. The Fearless Fund has donated $50k to Boulder B-cycle, and they have directed that donation towards 50 bikes worth of annual basket advertising. So, soon all of these bikes will whip around town spreading the visual feast of the best artists from Boulder, Denver and the front range.
The 25 selected artist panels will grace the bikes and rip around Boulder for one year, as will the work of another 25 artists whose work fetches the highest price at auction.

When: Soon. Very soon. So get your panel now. The Ads2Art Gala Evening will be June 2, 2011, 6-9PM at
Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, 1750 13th Street, Boulder, CO http://www.bmoca.org/
All of the panels will be on display and auctioned.

CALLING ALL CREATIVE PEEPS. GET INVOLVED IN BRINGING ART BEYOND THE GALLERY AND ONTO THE STREETS.

Be one of 50 selected artists whose work will tour the streets of Boulder for a year.
Ads2Art is accepting applications for 50 selected artists now. So, spread the word and let's make this a great example of how art can inspire even more as it leaves the gallery and hits the streets. Artists can apply here on the site or through hello@fearlesscottage.com to be a selected artist and receive a basket panel.

All original art work will go to the buyers and reproductions will be applied to the bikes. All proceeds generated at auction and through the sale of panels go to B-cycle.
