|Bike It: Portraits of my Bicipandilla by Kelly Marie Martin
August 18, 2011 – October 2, 2011Friday, September 23, 2011, 5-9pm
Curator: Irene TsatsosBike It: Portraits of my Bicipandilla by Kelly Marie Martin features black-and-white photographic portraits, taken with a 4×5 camera, of riders in her “bicipandilla,” or bicycle gang, with their bikes. The exhibit ends with a baked-goods-and-bikes bang: a closing ride and brunch with the City of Angels Ladies’ Bicycle Association, a.k.a. the Whirly Girls, on October 2nd, from 10am – 1pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Jen Hofer is a radical cyclist. By this I mean, radically committed. She commutes to downtown LA and most everywhere else by bicycle. She is one of the original Whirly Girls.
She is also a dear friend (and a 3:15 experiment poet!) and one of these days, she promises she will join us in Ventura for an ArtRide.
One day I hope we’ll do a Spoke(n) ArtRide through Ventura…and another day a writing workshop around Ventura by bike …
In the meantime, calendar these rides!
Our next ArtRide in Ventura is the Gothtober Quidditch Ride–let’s show these Muggles how we roll!
