Calling All Artists! Bicycle Tomato Art Show

The 7th annual Tomato Arts Fest in East Nashville is coming soon on August 14th. This event draws thousands of visitors and neighbors to East Nashville’s historic Five Points.

In celebration of all things tomato, Eastside Cycles is sponsoring a Bicycle Tomato Art Show. This is your chance to revel in the wonders of the bicycle and tomato-inspired art. Eastside Cycles will be open in our new location in Five Points and will exhibit your art inside and outside our building.

We will have two categories for Bicycle Tomato Art:

Helmet art will be hung or placed either inside or outside our bike shop during the show.

All bike art will be displayed outdoors. Bike frames must be able to stand upright on their own and withstand weather.

Space is limited and we will accept art request submissions on a first-come, first-served basis. If you make the cut-off, bicycle artists may submit 2 pieces of art, one of which must be tomato-themed.

The deadline for submissions is July 16, 2010 and completed artwork must be delivered to our new shop location by August, Eastside Cycles, 103 S. 11th Street, no later than August 4th.

There is a $5 entry fee per person. A jury will select the Best of Show, which will win a brand new bicycle and bragging rights. Several cash merit prizes will be awarded.
