The bicycles are coming! The bicycles are coming!
Couldn't We Ride an exhibit spotlighting the art and craft of the bicycle, opens July 1st, 2010, at Quirk. From a child's eyes, a bicycle is the ultimate gateway to freedom. They can go wherever they want, however fast they choose. Perhaps it is the feeling of freedom one gets when riding a bicycle that makes them such a nostalgic symbol. Perhaps it is because of the endless possibilities bicycles allow us. We have gathered a group of artists that Quirk believes have combined creativity and problem solving with beauty and functionality to produce bicycles and accessories that reach the highest level of craft and design. The exhibition will showcase work that demonstrates the elegance and importance of handmade items in everyday life.
