art bikes hit the street

Celebrating their 3rd anniversary, Cincinnati Red Bike commissioned three local artists to change perceptions of what a bike is. I also love the fact Red Bike took up the challenge with ArtsWave that art isn't just inside or static. Art is a living breathing creation with a life of its own.
From Red Bike,
"The initial run of ART BIKES is the first of future creative collaborations between Red Bike, ArtsWave, and area artists to enhance community connection to art and transportation. The three artists who contributed to this project are Amy Watson, Jessi Jumanji, Christian Schmit, through their mix of perspective and talent as a painter, sculptor and fabric artist."
These bikes are being deployed today and everyone will have the opportunity to ride run. How amazing is that?
They don't mention the timing, but I can't help but notice that Blink Cincinnati is coming up in a few weeks and these bikes will fit right in.
