ArtBike is a fundraiser and art show in support of the Copper Harbor Trails. Artists display their passion for the trails with ink, keyboards, paint, and cameras. Each artist creates a unique poster design based on a specific theme and are given a two-month timeline to create a poster. For the first two years, each artist picked a trail in Copper Harbor Trail system and illustrated their individual vision. In 2018 the theme changed to the more ambiguous, “Ride Copper Harbor," before switching back to trail names in 2019.
Artists have free range to showcase their favorite experiences while riding Copper Harbor. Our artists donate their time, talent, and an original submission for the cause. A limited number of each poster is printed on archival paper and numbered. A single large poster is mounted on a wood backing and sold at silent auction at our Bell's Beer Copper Harbor Trails Fest to wrap up the season. Every poster purchased directly funds trail building.
Leftover posters from the 2019 season and prior years are on sale! Visit our online store to make a purchase. Remember, all posters are limited edition and once they're gone, they're gone for good. Get 'em while you can! Posters are still be just $25 each plus a flat $8 shipping and handling no matter how many posters you buy. Shipping available to U.S. addresses only.
2020 ArtBike Updates!
We're disappointed that we didn't get to show off our 2020 ArtBike entries this year in person over Experience the Keweenaw. Never fear though! Where there's a will (and cool art), there's a way, and 2020 will be the first year we make our posters available online right from the start! On July 1st at 6 PM eastern time the first round of posters will go on sale. The second half will go on sale at Trails Fest in September. We have ten new entries this year and they're all fantastic. Mark your calendars because you don't want to miss out!
