The exhibition will feature original works of art by artists from across the U.S. and all of the art must relate in some way to bicycles or cycling. Interested artists will find the Entry Procedure for submitting artwork and additional information at www.tagart.org/call-for-artists-2/ or by calling the TAG office at (336) 887-2137.

The High Point Cycling Classic is one of the most well attended and celebrated sports and entertainment events in High Point’s history. Founded in 2010 by avid High Point cyclists Chip Duckett, Randy Carda and Rodney Simpson, the High Point Cycling Classic quickly became one of the community’s most anticipated gatherings. The High Point Cycling Classic and the Bobby Labonte Foundation generates substantial funds available as grants to community nonprofit organizations. All of your entry fees, sponsorship dollars, ticket purchases and any other dollar you spend at the Classic will go right back out to families here in our neighborhoods and benefit building stronger futures for our children!
