Seen at the Dallas Contemporary Street Art Bike Tour
As a part of Dallas Contemporary’s 35th year celebration, Autumn Hill, DC’s Learning Manager, reached out to the cycling community to see if we’d be interested in a group ride to see some of the recent murals installed at and near the gallery. It didn’t take long for Amanda Popken from Dallas Cycle Style to offer to lead the effort. The format was simple: we met at Dallas Contemporary and then rode to each mural where DC Associate Exhibitions Director, Erin Cluley, would meet us and then tell about the artist and work that had been produced. It was like having our own private art tour.
Cloud cover throughout the day made for ideal riding conditions. We also toured the gallery and enjoyed the current exhibitions and then had a light lunch at a nearby restaurant (of which I failed to note the name). It was a fun day and we’re already talking about how we can organize more art and gallery related bike rides and tours in the near future. Stay tuned.
