The Bike Project  //   Tuesday - October 6, 2009

OK boys and girls, get ready for a FREE and really cool exhibit on the thing we all love and can't get enough of: Bikes. My good friend and team mate Becky (who also is a serious rider) has put together what is sure to be an amazing presentation of art, writing and film celebrating the bicycle. I'm willing to bet that a number of you either know or have heard of many of the participants as well. Take a look at the press release below, there is plenty to check out. Things start this week. The film festival alone is 3 days. Hope to see you there.

Bikes and Art at Howard Community College
The Bike Project: A Visual, Literary and Cinematic Celebration of Biking in Our World,
October 8-November 15. Reception October 24, 5-7pm.

(Columbia, MD) - Howard Community College features "The Bike Project: A Visual, Literary and Cinematic Celebration of Biking in Our World." The project includes multimedia exhibitions and a film festival. A reception to will be held on October 24, 5-7pm at The Rouse Company Foundation Gallery in the Horowitz Center for Visual and Performing Arts. The exhibition, reception, and film festival are free and open to the public.

The Bike Project: A Literary Exploration explores biking through writing. Bikers often share the joys and challenges that they experience from the physical, social and emotional aspects of biking through writing, in blogs, sports publications and online forums. Based on the NPR writing project titled, "This I Believe...", bikers were asked to respond, in writing, to the theme, "I bike because..." Over 50 riders, most of those whom are not writers, responded. Their candid, insightful and creative responses express a well rounded and poignant picture of the power of biking in their lives, and those around them. Copies of their writings are available at the galleries.

The Bike Project: An Exhibition is invitational exhibition held in The Rouse Company Foundation Gallery. While the literary component of The Bike Project focused on bikers, who are not necessarily artists or writers, the exhibition does the opposite. Established artists-painters, sculptors, photographers, ceramic artists, printmakers, etc-who are not necessarily avid cyclists(though some are), were asked to create bike related artwork. An exciting number of artists (46) took on the challenge. The resulting artwork will be displayed in the galleries from October 8-November 15, 2009.

The Bike Project: Did You Get That??? Great Moments On(and Off) the Bike, Photos by Bikers is an open
exhibition where bikers were asked to submit up to three photos of their choosing that depict their biking experiences. It will be shown in the Art Department Gallery October 8 - November 15, 2009.

The Bike Project - A Film Festival, runs October 19-23, in the Monteabaro Hall of the Horowitz Center for Visual and Performing Arts.
Monday, October 19, 7pm, features two films: "Off Road to Athens" captures the personal struggles and sacrifices of 8 cyclists trying to make the U.S. Olympic team, and "24 Solo" follows Howard County resident and 24 Hour Solo World Champion Chris Eatough on his quest to a seventh consecutive title.
Wednesday, October 21, 7pm, features three films-"The Collective," "Roam," and "Seasons"- that portray the newest and cutting edge images of the freeride progression while exploring thoughts and personalities of the riders leading to the progression, as well as following seven of the world’s best mountain bikers through the course of 4 seasons of one year.
Friday, October 24, 7pm, features "Klunkerz," a thoughtful and accurate portrayal of the cycling enthusiasts of Northern California’s Marin County where mountain biking originated among a diverse group of cyclist racers and fun-loving hippies looking for a way to commune with nature. Their original hefty steeds were affectionately knows as Klunkerz.

Exhibit viewing hours are Monday - Friday,10 a.m. -8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. The Rouse Company Foundation Gallery is located in the Horowitz Arts Center on the Howard Community College campus at 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, MD 21044.
