“Art is not what you see,
but what you make others see.” – Edgar Degas

Art takes on many forms. The asphalt we roll on is our canvas. Every ride on it is yet another brush stroke and on these streets we create a masterpiece. The cross roads of contemporary art and the performance art of LA street cycling intersect at “Art Crash”.

The ride will encompass art openings at both Bergamot Station in Santa Monica and the Culver City Arts District. Bergamot Station will have seven simultaneous openings and Culver City will have fifteen. The meet point will be at the LACMA where a number works can be viewed for free prior to the rides commencement.

We’ll roll at a slow to medium pace and crash Bergamot Station first. There will be a half way stop on the way there at a market for snacks and refreshments. Because of the art opening time overlap, we will depart for the Culver City Arts District not a minute later than 6pm and catch the remaining time for viewing which terminates at 8pm. We roll back to the LACMA after our contemporary art experience is complete for the day.

Meeting Spot:
LACMA Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Urban Lights

Saturday January 10th
Meet at 2pm and roll at 2:45 pm sharp.

Ride Length:
Approx. 24 miles over mostly flat terrain.

What to Bring:
A working bicycle, U-lock, spares, tools and a happy face.

What not to Bring:
A bad attitude, destructive behavior and or malicious intentions. The Art Police will not tolerate this kind of thing.

Bike riding has its inherent risks as do all modes of transportation including but not limited to travel by automobile, train, aircraft, watercraft, horseback, camelback or foot.
