Big news, BKB: We are turning TEN on September 9, 2019! For this year’s BKBDay party, we want to do something to include our community.


Here’s the deal: 

To help us commemorate a decade of arts, culture, and vertical adventures together, we’re calling on all creatives (e.g., artists, photographers, painters, designers, hand letterers, etc.) to help us cover our BKB walls with one-of-a-kind art. The theme? “TEN.” Check out the instructions below for more info.


Calling all creatives:

For our ten year milestone, we’ll be featuring select pieces of “ten” art in a permanent community installation in each facility (so yeah, your work will stick around for a while)! We’ll also be printing select designs into posters and stickers. 


If your submission is chosen, you will receive:

  • Space on the installation in each BKB facility (Gowanus, Queensbridge, Somerville, and Chicago)
  • A printed piece framed for you to keep
  • Artist credit + features on social media
  • 2 tickets to BKBDay in your city
  • BKBDay 10 t-shirt
  • $100 BKB account credit
  • Glory, bragging rights, and all the #BKBlove

  • If you are unsure of how to work within the provided InDesign or Illustrator documents, no worries. Simply create your work at 11.5” wide x 14.25” high, aiming to have your version of 10/Ten 7.5”w x 8.5”h, centered.  If you have any questions, please reach out to us–we want everyone to be able to participate!
