Bike It: Portraits of my Bicipandilla by Kelly Marie Martin
Sunday, Oct 2, 2011
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Bike It: Portraits of my Bicipandilla by Kelly Marie Martin features black-and-white photographic portraits, taken with a 4x5 camera, of riders in her “bicipandilla,” or bicycle gang, with their bikes. A reception with a reading by artist and poet Jen Hofer—one of the riders Martin photographed for Bike It—will take place on Thursday, August 18th, from 7-9pm.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an event known as CraftNight with Craft Captain JP (Julianna Parr) on August 20th from 5-7pm, where the bicycle-themed crafts of choice will be spokecards and personalized license plates. On September 23rd from 5-9pm CICLE will co-sponsor a poetry-and-art-inflected “spoken art” ride around Pasadena. 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. All events are free and open to the public.
