The Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History “Experience Metal” interactive exhibit this weekend will feature, among many other things, ridable art bikes.
On display is a compilation of tools, appliances, and cargo-carrying devices, all powered by the humble bicycle. Included are such creations as a bike blender, a hacked tandem independent drive, center-pull brake grabber tool, and more. Plus, join us for a gathering of Tallbikes, Freakbikes, Swingbikes and other wild contraptions that you can try out on the Test Track!
Much more is happening as well at the SC MAH:
- TONIGHT: 3rd Friday: Experience Metal Performances
- Saturday: Experience Metal with freak bikes, tall bikes and other art bikes.
- Sunday: Experience Metal where local framebuilder Josh Muir will demonstrate basic brazing proceedure for bicycle frame construction as well as simple techniques for working metal by hand.
Elsewhere: San Jose Bike Party TONIGHT; Pedal Fest at Jack London Square Oakland on SATURDAY. I’m sure there’s stuff happening in the Bay Area on Sunday, too.
You have NO EXCUSE for boredom. If you live outside of the Bay Area, you have even less of an excuse: Make this stuff happen in your region!
