DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION SUBMISSION: NOVEMBER 10th, 2014
The Coral Gables Museum announces a call for artists for the third annual ARTcycle, an exhibit and public art installation that merges the Miami art scene with the Miami bike movement.
The Museum is excited to announce that the 2015 ARTcycleexhibit will be presented at the Coral Gables Museum from March 5 to May 24, 2015, and in addition, a public art installation throughout the City of Coral Gables will be featured from February to May, 2015.
Selected artists will be part of an exhibit and public program series that will promote biking and bike safety in our community, all while garnering tremendous exposure! The exhibit curators are Tachi Llamas and Giselle Delgado, founders of the ARTcycle project.
ARTcycle 2015 | Theme: Cyclists Matter
The Coral Gables Museum seeks to ensure that the viewer leaves the exhibition with a better understanding of the rules of cycling and bike safety, and a sense of respect towards the cyclist.
Your work and message as an artist should reflect and keep in mind the humanizing of the bicycle. Some motorists seem to forget that the bicyclist sharing their traffic lane is a person who has chosen to cycle for transportation, exercise or leisure activity; and that cycling yields many community benefits such as less pollution, less traffic congestion, a stronger sense of community, safer streets, improved accessibility, and economic gains. At the same time, your piece can convey the necessity for bike riders to be aware of the traffic laws and the right for cars to share the road as well. ARTcycle 2015 should have a clear message as to the importance of bicycling culture in Greater Miami.
You may choose to submit a proposal for an ArtBike (sculpture made from bike parts), an installation or other bike-related art work.
