Columbus, OHIO -

May is Bike Month at Wild Goose Creative. For the full month, Wild Goose Creative will display posters by over 30 central Ohio artists who have been inspired by bicycles and the cycling culture of Columbus. These posters are meant to inspire bike riding, celebrate the art and craft of bikes, and invite thought about bikes as an important way to get around Columbus. Each limited-edition poster is $30, and is beautifully designed and printed especially for Pinchflat 2012.

On Saturday, May 5, Wild Goose Creative will host the Pinchflat Bicycle Poster Blowout, which will be fun for the whole family. This event will feature two bike rides, live music, great food donated by local restaurants, vendors peddling their coffee and sweets, t-shirt printing, artist-designed coloring book pages, a printing workshop, a raffle for products and services from local businesses, and more. This event is created to please people who like posters, bikes, local art, or all of the above.

This event is free, and open to the public. The first 100 guests will receive a free gift bag.

During May 5’s Gallery Hop evening, Paradise Garage in the Short North will showcase the artwork. Throughout the month of May, Seagull Bags in downtown Columbus will present and sell all the posters. After May 5, posters can also be purchased at pinchflatcolumbus.com.

Presenting sponsors include Wild Goose Creative, Jeremy Slagle Design, Yay Bikes!, BikeOSU, Graham Erwin Design, Make Believe Monsters, Paradise Garage, and Seagull Bags.

Pinchflat is made possible by grants from The United Way of Central Ohio, The Ohio Arts Council, and the Columbus Foundation.
