Unchained – The Art of the Bicycle
Exhibit Dates: May 11 – June 13, 2013
Reception Date: May 11, 2013 6-8pm
Artworks is kick’n up the RPM’s with a bicycle themed art exhibit celebrating Trenton Cycling Revolution’s 17th Annual Bike Tour. An exploration into the intersection of Art and Bike Culture, from depictions of bicycles and bike culture to objects made of bicycles.
The annual Trenton Bike Tour will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2013. Artworks will be the location for the rest stop and an after party later in the afternoon. Last year more than 200 bicycle enthusiasts, families, kids, local residents and out-of-towners started the 15-mile leisurely ride in Trenton’s Olmsted-designed Cadwalader Park, and continued on to tour the city’s historic streets and sights, diverse neighborhoods and community gardens. If you are not familiar with the Trenton Bike Tour, consider these words from a local rider, “I love the Trenton Bike Tour! If you are unfamiliar with Trenton, or even if you know it well, the Trenton Bike Tour is the coolest way to see the city.” This year the tour will focus on public art in Trenton.
Artworks Trenton, Trenton Cycling Revolution (TCR), and SAGE Coalition are hosting a BBQ following the 2013 TCR Trenton Bike Tour!
Please join us for traditional barbeque fare, beverages, music by DJ Ahmad, and BMX bike tricks by SAGE Coalition.
