The event will coincide with the First Thursday art walk on June 7th.
Three artists will use Timbuk2’s Artist Canvas bag as their canvas to create original, one-of-a-kind works of art. The proceeds from sales of the bags will go to local non-profit groups.
Local artist Justin Gorman chose b.i.k.e. as the non-profit he wanted to help. b.i.k.e., which stands for Bicycles and Ideas for Kids’ Empowerment, is a Portland-based non-profit that, “facilitates the development of values and life skills essential for productive citizenship in inner-city youth through bicycling, tutoring, year-round mentoring, and leadership training.”
You can get a sneak peak of Gorman’s design on his website.
