Bike Racks and Bicycle Art on Display in City Hall

The Flower Show has ended, but not your chance to see the beautiful bicycle racks coming to Center City later this summer. The racks have moved to the Art Gallery at City Hall (did you know there was an art gallery in City Hall? Well now you do!) for a three-month installation.

This installation will feature two racks which did not make it into the Flower Show. And complimenting the racks like a fine wine pairing will be Bike p'ARTs, a collection of art utilizing bicycle parts to explore themes of sustainability, health, and the urban environment. The art in this new collection is contributed by eleven local artists: Regina Kelly Barthmaier, Robert Barabos, Charlize Katzenbach, Jennifer Lynn, Gerry Marron, Eric Mozes and Donnell Powell of Color My Sidewalk, Elicia “Eel-Eye” Avenue, Scott White, Kendal Wilkins and Raphael Xavier.

There will be an artists reception on April 9th from 5:00-7:00 pm in the gallery space.
