WHY I RIDE: THE ART OF BICYCLING IN NEW YORK
May 3–June 3, 2007

This independently organized, multivenue exhibition showcased New York artists who are inspired by the freedom and mobility that the bicycle makes possible in a congested metropolis. These artists view interactions with neighbors and strangers — both friendly and otherwise — as preferable to the isolation that grows out of our sprawling, auto-dependent environment.
