Locations and Posters


2021 is a year filled with change, new technology, hope, and the promise of good things to come. The Welcome Race Fans artwork is no different. The artwork for the 105th running are all GIFs and will go down in history as a very unique year for the project, the first all digital year.  And yes, you can still purchase digital art – even GIFs! Learn more about GIFs as original artwork here.  

Even though the artworks are GIFs, we’ve asked the artists to create a still image that can be reproduced as a poster. Look for news on locations and times were you can pick up your 2021 poster coming soon!

Looking for something a bit more traditional you can frame and display in your home or office…

Many of the 58 original artworks from the past six years are still available. If you are interested in purchasing an original artwork or a giclée print (like the one pictured below on high quality rag paper), contact .
