If you are a cycling enthusiast and you haven’t seen The Bike Show at Maryland Art Place, you’re almost out of time. The multimedia exhibition curated by local artist and cyclist Dawn Gavin sprawls through all three of MAP’s cavernous galleries. Besides the expected prints and paintings of bikes and bikers in action, the exhibit boasts a giant, colorful half-pipe with a blingy gold dirt bike that is interactive, and several other unusual (rideable?) assemblages that include actual bikes. This exhibit leaves you pondering a multitude of possibilities for this familiar household machine.
The Bike Show closes on Saturday, October 27. Artists included are: Chris Bishop, Faith Layla Bocian, Dan Perkins, David D’Orio, Eric Dyer, Ryan Humphrey, John K. Lawson, Joshua Wade Smith, Jean Francois Rauzier, and Kenk: A Graphic Portrait by Nick Marinkovich (Illustrator), Alex Jansen (Producer/Director), Jason Gilmore (Filmmaker/Designer), Richard Poplak (Writer)
