Event creates color, community and celebration
SACRAMENTO, Calif.—ArtBike!, a street art/sculpture/installation art exhibition in support of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) is sweeping Sacramento with a indooor/outdoor display that started Saturday February 11th and runs until March 4th.
Two high points on the ArtBike! calendar are a party at Hot Italian, March 1, and then ArtBike! Sacramento’s Avante-Garde bicycle parade on March 3.
ArtBike! manager, Julia Beckner, said “Sacramento is such a bike-friendly community with a wealth of creative talent, I’m not surprised there is so much energy and enthusiasm for ArtBike! It’s great to see how many people are ready to step forward with creative expressions of their passion for including bicycles in a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.”
ArtBike! was created by NAHBS to help engage the local community and is open to all. It celebrates the vibrant cycling and artistic communities that made such a compelling argument for Sacramento to be this year’s host for the world-leading North American Handmade Bike Show in the Sacramento Convention Center, March 2-4.
ArtBike! runs at these galleries and venues until March 4th.

February 11th, 4-8 p.m: Self-guided gallery tour in Downtown and Midtown.
March 1st, 6 – 8 p.m: Kick Off Party at Hot Italian, sponsored by Rickshaw Bagworks and Bicycle Times Magazine, with a raffle to raise funds for cycling and art non-profits
