PNCA President Don Tuski Joins Portland Influencers to Select Nike BIKETOWN Challenge Finalists
April 22, 2018
The BIKETOWN Community Design Challenge was launched earlier this year as an opportunity for members of Portland's five quadrants — Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, Southwest, and North — to submit color scheme designs they felt represented their area of the Rose City. Submissions to the challenge were recently narrowed down to no more than 10 finalists per quadrant by a panel of local Portland influencers including PNCA's president, Don Tuski. Public voting will then determine the winning designs, 1 per quadrant, which begins Thursday, April 26 at biketowndesignchallenge.com (anyone who has or has had a BIKETOWN account is eligible to vote). The winning designs will then "wrap" ten BIKETOWN bikes and released in the corresponding neighborhoods each month beginning May 2018.
An inspiring event to further the presence and vibrant nature of art in our city, we would like to thank Nike BIKETOWN for orchestrating and hosting this unique design challenge. We can't wait to see the new designs!
