I had always wondered since we moved here 5 years ago how come there wasnt an existing local art bike parade and contest. So, in honor of the 2015 Tour De France Grand Depart happening right here in Utrecht this year, I took it as an opportunity to start a new tradition. I met with a bunch of people, asked questions, invited several people to help with the project (Special Thanks to: Eemke, Pauline, Bob, Okke, Marieke & Paula for your time and skill, also to Marij & Serge for their expertise and advice in organising public projects, Laag Catharijne & Utrecht Fietst for their generous support). We had anticipated about 20 participating bikes, and were thrilled and amazed by the overwhelming public support for the idea, when 50 individual bikes came out to show despite the rain, including the Rollende Resto, Vergroening van Utrecht, and Live to Play Hoopdance - hope to see you all (& more!) again next year!
I recently had the opportunity to participate in a great project from the AAMU. In honor of the Tour de France Grand Depart happens to be in Utrecht this year, they invited several local artists to come paint an Art Bike based on or inspired from their collections for an Aboriginal Art Bike exhibit!
Congratulations to Peter Westenbrink of Utrecht West in his recent acquisition!
Always enjoy getting this sort of assignment. Winter theme for 4 locations of a local daycare.
