Another crazy bicycle: STEAMPUNK ArtRides April 2 & 18Posted: March 29, 2010
The theme is STEAMPUNK! No you don’t HAVE to have a Steampunk bike (I’ll be on my bikergo of course) but it’s fun to imagine a bunch of us riding around on these crazy bicycles!
Steampunk FFArtRide April 2:
Meet at the Ventura Beach Promenade Fountain at 5:30pm; ride leaves at 6pm.
Steampunk Sunday ArtWalk ArtRide April 18:
Meet at the Ventura Beach Promenade Fountain at 1:30pm; ride leaves at 2pm. Steampunk Fashion Show & ArtWalk afterparty at Bell Arts Factory 432 N. Ventura Ave. from 4-6pm with beer donated by Anacapa Brewery (thank YOU!) and food TBA.
Participants are encouraged to dress with the Steampunk theme of reINVENTion, reCREATion, and reCYCLE. There will be on-going workshops at Bell Arts and Vita to help.
Think Jules Verne science fiction.
Think Victorian-inspired like corsets and hoop skirts with a punk twist.
Think gears and wrenches, watches and horns.
Think vintage, and otherwise wacky, fun, ornate clothing in natural fibers and colors as well as jewel tones.
If all else fails, think Tweed Ride.
Please DO bring recent inventions, bicycles with headlights, cups for libations, and musical instruments.
Please DON’T wear contemporary looking clothing (jeans, t-shirts, athletic shoes). In addition to being a blast, ArtRides are a performance art piece as well as environmental activism: dressing up draws attention to cycling and to cyclists.
This family friendly ride is free, but donations are welcome.
