Screens N Spokes Bike Posters
Screens 'N'Spokes = art show, a bike team, and a group of folks taking a stand against Multiple Sclerosis. Founded in 2007 by Sam Verrill and Jess Harris, SNS has raised over $200,000 to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) in Philadelphia. It's also rallied an entourage of artists, musicians, cyclists, MS patients, + Etsy customers from across the US + abroad to bring new energy/enthusiasm to the cause.
Indie rock posters? Bikes? Screens 'N' Spokes unites them as a fundraising super team. Over the past five years, more than 50 gigposter artists have created original screenprints for Screens 'N' Spokes. All artwork is donated by the artists pro bono and then sold to benefit the NMSS. Many of the artists have been touched by MS in some way, and want to pay tribute to their loved ones living with the disease.
Screens 'N' Spokes partners with several Philadelphia coffeeshops to create a month long show that leads up to the Bike MS City to Shore Ride in late September. Nine of this year's artists have already been a part of the Screens 'N' Spokes community, including Jay Ryan, Judge, The Half and Half and Greg Pizzoli who have contributed every year. For 2011, 6 awesome new artists who will also leave their mark.
We'll keep you up-to-date on the show as it progresses. Some posters are offered online right away, while others are offered when the show closes. We have a selecton of previous years' work - all bike-themed, all signed + numbered. we love SNS and are happy to carry their posters with 100% of the sale price going back to the charity.
