Each year SMMoA (The Santa Monica Museum of Art) hosts a Tour da Art Competition in conjunction with their annual bike event. This year the ride will stop at a number of locations throughout the Santa Monica area and is considered an easy-going ride. To highlight the festivities, the museum is running a competition once again for a black and white illustration of a "bike critter."
Deadline: June 21st, 2012
