Philadelphia artists honor bicycling

Written by , Posted in Art, People, Tyler School of Art

In honor of the growing community of bicyclists in Philadelphia, the city’s Arts, Culture and Creative Economy Department will be holding an art reception on Wednesday, April 9.

The reception is being held to highlight the work of winners from last summers competition, which was held by the department. The competition challenged artists all over the world to create intricate and creative bike racks.

After the winners were selected, artists from the greater Philadelphia area were also encouraged to submit their own pieces to help represent the bike culture of the city and sustainability.

Two of the artists chosen from Philadelphia include Donnell Powell and Eric Mozes, 2012 graduates of Temple University, whose mixed media sculpture entitled, “Boundaries Therefore We Brake”, will be on display on the second floor of City Hall for the next four months.

The reception on April 9 will take place from 5 – 7 p.m. on the first and second floors, as part of the Art Gallery at City Hall.

Doors will officially open to the public starting at 6 p.m. but guests who arrive early may sign in at the northeast corner of the building, near the office of the Mayor.
