Portland Bike Culture – Cycle Seen 08

 

We may be a bit late on blogging about this (since most of the art has come down already), but it was such a cool idea it’s deserves some credit. I am all for artists being more involved in our metropolitan day to day life. Did anyone see the art around town? 

Bridging communities of cyclists, photographers and artists

We are proud to announce a new event in Portland’s prominent bike culture. Cycle Seen is an exhibition of photographs, artwork and documentation representing the bicycle culture in Metro Portland. This project is a celebration of the bike community through pictures. Portland has an astonishingly diverse and unique community of cyclists ranging from daily commuters to bike performance groups. There are various sub-cultures that make up the dynamic mix of PDX cyclists.

The exhibition includes a combination of materials from invited photographers/artists and images selected from a call for submissions. Photographs and illustrations that represent a snapshot of cycling in PDX over the last two years will be displayed through out the city at various locations during the month of June. The locations will allow an intertwining of communities, artists and cyclists. A bike map/route and location guide is available to at the various locations and by download (pdf).
