The museum writes: “Join cutting-edge American bicycle designers Bob Parlee of Parlee Cycles and Rob Vandermark of Seven Cycles as Aldrich curator Mónica Ramírez-Montagut moderates a discussion on new technology in bike design, with an emphasis on frame materials such as carbon fiber and titanium.”
If you’re in town, I think it’s going to be an interesting session. Bob is always worth talking with, and the Aldrich Museum’s current bike exhibit is really well designed.
About the exhibit:
“The multidisciplinary project will feature approximately thirty works from around the world, including functional cycles—ranging from cutting–edge designs to populist expressions—as well as bicycle–inspired sculpture and video.
“Mónica Ramírez–Montagut agreed that the bikes on view, “represent different identities and serve new and distinct functions. Avid bike riders, amateur bike aficionados, recreational bikers, artists, cutting–edge designers, and the community at large are all reconsidering bicycles through their personal point of view: their own ideal bike.””
