Bicycle art show coming to Newark - Submissions Wanted!

The lead for this story comes to us from our friends at the Brick City Bike Collective via their Facebook Page.  The following message comes from the Index Art Center via their FB call for submissions.

Open Call for submissions:
ART CYCLE: An exhibition of bicycle inspired art.

Deadline to submit: 2/10/12
Artists reception: 3/10/12

IAC is revisiting one of our favorite subjects, and hopefully yours BICYCLES!

Marcel Duchamp created his most famous "Readymade" Bicycle Wheel in 1913. Over the last century the influence of the bicycle on art is as diverse and far reaching as the two wheel machine itself.

Bikes have been used as kinetic sculptures, muses for painters and photographers, and as a blank canvas for artists and innovators alike. This exhibition, once again, hopes to capture the spirit of the bicycle, and its place in contemporary art.

Submit your proposals, jpeg images, or video links to Index Art Center :
Please write “Art Cycle” in the subject line.

- Include your full name and all contact info
- Brief description and dimensions of work or installation.

- No submission fee.

Deadline for submissions and proposals: February 10, 2012
