Fuji Meshes Art With Urban Bike Culture

Published June 10, 2008

PHILADELPHIA, PA—Fuji Bikes is working with Jinxed Philadelphia and R.E. Load Baggage to produce the Rolling Canvas Art Collective in an effort to highlight the use of bicycles as a means of artistic expression.

More than 20 artists will recreate fixed-gear bicycles into one-of-a-kind representations of their creative methods ranging from sculpture and metal work to street art and paint.

The art installations will be auctioned off to the public with each artist donating a portion of the proceeds to Neighborhood Bike Works of Philadelphia.

A public gallery opening will be held on Friday, Aug. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Media Bureau Gallery in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. The exhibit is open to the public through the end of August.

Also, a public online auction will begin on Tuesday, July 29 at 4 p.m. EST and run through Tuesday, Aug. 5th at 4 p.m. EST. Photos of the pieces and auction links will be posted online as they become available.
