Art on wheels
I’ll save my thoughts about bikes and biking for another blog. Suffice it to say, I’m all for it. I’m pro-bike all the way. I ride to work. I ride for fun. I ride for exercise. When it comes to the hierarchy of transportation, I put pedestrians on top, followed closely by bicyclists, then mass transit and finally cars. This means if I come to an intersection at the same time as a car, I’m not stopping and he’s yielding to me.
Yep. I realize that if the car feels differently, I’m going to get the worst of the confrontation but I’m willing to bleed for my principles.
Anyway, this is all a way of introducing Alex Schmidt’s latest story about and exhibition at the Media Bureau in Northern Liberties featuring art made out of bicycles. According to the site for the exhibition:
A public gallery opening and auction will be held on Friday night, August 1st, 7:00 PM at Media Bureau Gallery in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. The exhibit is open to the public through the end of August.
So if you’re looking for something to do this First Friday and you’re as fired up about your own two-wheeled work of art as I am about my 25-year-old, cherry red Schwinn, this may be the place for you.
