Bike Rides at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

Bike culture, arguably, has reached an all-time high in the United States. Art related to two wheeled adventure and transport appears quite regularly, but rarely with the scope presented in Bike Rides. Now on view at Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT, the exhibition presents a multi-media and multi-medium view of the bicycle in contemporary culture. From the purely art based object to concept bicycles, the range both impressive and provides a comprehensive overview of current thinking about the bike, sustainability, and urban travel. The project was organized by the museum’s curators with consulting advice from artist and cyclist David Byrne. Learn more direct from the Aldrich.

On view until January 3, 2010.
