Aldrich Museum Pedals Bicycle Art

10.16.09 Will Sherman


All types of two-wheelers have taken over The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum for “Bike Rides: The Exhibition.” Curated with the assistance of musical bike advocate David Byrne, the mixed media show features working bicycles, both functional and artistic, as well as pedal-inspired pieces by Lance Armstrong, Bamboo Bike Studio, Tom Sachs, Puerto Rico Schwinn Club and Cai Guo-Qiang among others. The Ridgefield, Connecticut exhibition will remain on display through January 17 to “emphasize the diverse use and function of these man–powered machines that is present in different societies.”
