Each poster is just $25, the same price that you'd find in person. Shipping is just $8 (U.S. only) no matter how many you order, and local pickup is free in the Houghton/Hancock/Copper Harbor area. To view what we have in stock and place your order, visit our online Square store today! Act fast though, because some posters have very limited stock and won't be around for long. All proceeds from the sale will be used to support trail building and maintenance in the Copper Harbor area.
What is ArtBike?
ArtBike in the Harbor is a group of artists collaborating to raise money for trail building in Copper Harbor. Artists display their passion for the trails with ink, keyboards, paint and cameras. The event has grown from eleven artists in 2016 to nineteen in 2018. Each artist creates a unique poster design based on a specific theme. Artists are given a 2-month timeline to create a poster. For the first two years, we each 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.” Artists had free range to showcase their favorite experiences while riding Copper Harbor. The only guidelines were for the size to be 13”x19” and include the name Copper Harbor. The artists donated their time, talent, and an original submission for the cause. Thirty copies of each poster were printed with archival paper and inks, then numbered and signed by the artist. 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.
