THERE IS STILL TIME to enter a fun and festive art bike design in the upcoming 2016 Owosso ArtBike event. The concept is to take an unused bicycle and turn it into a quirky, artistic piece representing a personal interest, an area business, or a local nonprofit group. The art bike designs will be on display during the annual downtown ArtWalk on Friday, Sept. 9. Winner(s) will be decided Sept. 10 at 4 p.m. in the Main Street Plaza. A grand prize of $100 will be awarded to the winner.
The floral art bike, here, was on display throughout the morning on N. Washington St. on Saturday, Aug. 27. Other art bike pieces can be found in the downtown area.
Any age or group can participate, though all entries need to be appropriate for families and community members. Also, the finished art bike product does not have to be functional, though waterproof. A $10 entry fee and participation form are required and need to be submitted by Friday, Sept. 2. For more information, go to http://www.usampm.com/event/Owosso-ArtBike-2016/1301120/.
