      Somerville Arts Council presents

      March 2013 Salon: The Intersection of Bikes and Art

       

      Wednesday, March 27 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

       

      Location

      Arts at the Armory

      191 Highland Ave.

      Somerville, MA

       

      What do you get when bicycles and art cross paths?

      Skunk, Against the Grind, and Bikeyface will lead us on a wheeling adventure that intersects comics, robots, road culture, documentary filmmaking, lasers, blogging, choppers and more.

      About the Speakers

      SCUL-ture and Sculpture
      Skunk speaks of SCUL: bicycle chopper gang, and Skunkadelia: art made from upcycled bike parts. Skunk has been transmogrifying trash-picked bikes since 1996. The awe-inspiring chopper Cloudbuster will be on hand for show and tell.

      Against The Grind
      Rachel Wiederhoeft and Jessica Barnthouse Against The Grind will discuss documentary filmmaking while living on bikes. How do you find a film subject in the middle of nowhere? How much film production equipment can you reasonably bring on a bike tour? When do you film and when do you just let the experiences happen? Questions like these will be covered; along with clips from our documentary series they produced while pedaling 3,500 miles across the United States.

      Bikeyface
      Bikeyface is a hilarious, and sometimes irreverent, web comic about biking in the city. Bekka Wright will talk about how she uses her cartoons to entertain, educate, and raise the profile of biking for normal transportation.
