We heART Bikes at Northstar! Thursday, April 14th, 2011

The We heART Bikes show was a resounding success this year. We received over a hundred submissions from 44 artists (more than ever!), had over five hundred people attend the event, and we heard over and over during the show and after how impressed people were with the continuing quality of the art year after year. In all, we were able to raise over 4,000 dollars due to the immense level of community support!

Fortunately, we have an opportunity to put on a second show during the Tour of California. We will be holding the Northstar art show on May 14th and 15th in anticipation of the finish of the first stage. Let this be another CALL FOR ARTISTS!
50% of the proceeds of the art sales will go to the RBP.
Submissions should be received by Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 5 p.m. Please mail or deliver submissions to the Reno Bike Project at 541 East 4th Street, Reno, Nevada 89512 or to Northstar-at-Tahoe Events Office (located above security in the Village). Please call 775.323.4488 or 530.562.8048 for additional information.
