ArtBike! kicks off the NAHBS season in Sacramento
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.
