Last November, I mentioned the SRAM pART PROJECT, a unique “bike part” art exhibition and auction to raise money for World Bicycle Relief. The inaugural 2011 project was a big success, so they are doing it again this year with almost twice as many artists participating. The original art pieces, created with SRAM parts, will be exhibited and auctioned at the 2012 pART PROJECT charity gala, which will take place on November 29th at the Cedar Lake Theater in New York City. Tickets to the event next week can be purchased online for $268/person (a figure that represents the cost of providing two World Bicycle Relief bicycles).
It wasn’t easy to pick only five pieces to show in this post. There are many others that I really like, but I had to draw the line somewhere. I do encourage you to check out all of the art here though.
On the subject of World Bicycle Relief, I want to mention that there is no better time to donate to cause if you are so inclined. They have a campaign called “The Solution” running through the end of the year, and during that time your donation will be matched dollar for dollar. I personally believe that World Bicycle Relief is doing great work, and I plan to take advantage of the donation matching during this holiday campaign. I hope that many of you will consider supporting them as well.
