Thanks too to the people who referred me to other fine examples of creativity on two wheels. There were such a lot of good ones it deserved a follow-up post…
In Hobart’s MONA gallery you’re guaranteed to find something startling and provocative. Sometimes it involves a bike.
I love the idea of the Animals on Bikes project in western New South Wales. In 2010, farmers were invited to make their own bike/sculptures and set them in their paddocks to entertain passing motorists.
The result is an ongoing outdoor art gallery 120 kilometres long, with regularly changing exhibitions. I must get out there soon and drive the route myself, or ride it on a bike!
