Marin Museum selling bricks to donors

Published April 15, 2014

FAIRFAX, Calif. (BRAIN) — The Marin Museum of Bicycling will build a Legacy Wall, with bricks marking the support of museum donors.

The four-foot high Mt. Tam Legacy Wall is at the corner of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard at Claus Drive in downtown Fairfax. The wall is shaped in the profile of Mount Tamalpais and spans 35 feet.

Museum supporters can purchase tiles, which will be engraved with their own messages. Tiles can be purchased in three sizes, from 4x8 inches for $250 to 12x12 inches for $1,000.

The Marin Museum of Bicycling is a bicycle history museum and cultural center slated to open in mid-2014. On display will be bicycles representing the extraordinary history of the world's most efficient vehicle, from the 1860s to the present.

The museum's permanent displays will include the Igler Collection of 19th century bicycles showcasing the intense, "Golden Era" period of bicycle development, and the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, which was founded in 1988 and recently moved from Crested Butte, Colo., to Fairfax. Special, temporary exhibits, focused on specific aspects of cycling will be displayed through the years.

Tiles can be ordered from the museum website or by picking up a form outside the museum entrance at 1966 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in Fairfax, former location of the Good Earth grocery store.
