Balance is a juried show of bicycle-based or themed 2D and 3D work—held in conjunction with Troy, Ohio’s 2017 Sculptures on the Square public art exhibit of Mexican artist Gilberto Aceves Navarro’s Las Bicicletas— and will be on display in the Mayflower Arts Center’s Lobby Gallery, May 1-June 24, 2017.

Participation in Balance is open to all artists over the age of 16. Artists making 2D and 3D art based loosely or directly on bicycles, bicycle history, and bicycle culture are encouraged to submit their work. All submissions will be juried by the Mayflower Arts Center’s exhibition committee. Along with three jury awards, there will also be a People’s Choice Award based on popular votes cast by visitors during the exhibition. The exhibition will be on display during the 2017 Troy Strawberry Festival (June 3-6, 2017), one of Ohio’s premiere and highest attended festivals.

The artists selected will be exhibited and promoted by a partnership between the Mayflower Arts Center, Troy Main Street, and the Miami County Visitors Convention Bureau in coordination with the 2017 Sculptures on the Square Las Bicicletas urban art display throughout downtown Troy, May through July. While Balance is being held in conjunction with the Sculptures on the Square public display, work submitted to Balance does not have to be related to Navarro’s work, style, context, or concept.
