Orlando Bike Kitchen Project

July 27th, 2010

The City Arts Factory (29 S Orange Ave) has invited Greg Leibowitz and several other artists to be a part of their upcoming (Aug 19th) group installation art show. The show is titled ‘What moves you?’ and the theme for the show is transportation.

Greg is asking for used and unwanted bicycles and bike parts to be dropped-off at various locations around Orlando, one of which is Stardust Video and Coffee’s bike rack.

The project will then be installed in City Arts Factory as a defacto bike kitchen where bicycles will be worked on for the duration of the show. Volunteers will sign up for shop hours, workshops will be hosted for people to learn how to repair their bikes, and finished complete bikes will be painted orange and given to communities in need.

Ideally this project will continue outside of the gallery setting and transition to a permanent centrally located space with grants, yearly memberships and low cost complete bike builds.

If you would like to volunteer or have bikes, bike parts or bike related tools please contact Greg at Greg.Leibowitz@gmail.com.
