PEDALS AND PRINTS CLOSES BUT THE BICYCLISTS WILL CONTINUE ON
In a continuing effort to promote the “bicycle as a as a viable, healthy, and sustainable transportation choice” and to expose the growing bicyclist movement growing in Downtown Los Angeles, Crewest Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles, is calling upon all Angelenos, Bicyclists and Art Enthusiasts to join them this Saturday, April 24th, 2010 from 7pm to 9pm for the closing of Pedals and Prints.
Pedals and Prints is an exhibition featuring hand printed bicycle themed art by artists who all share an undying enthusiasm for the bicycling community.
In addition to the closing event, Two Rabbits Studios, the curators of Pedals and Prints, will be releasing their new t-shirts “Penny Party” and “Dumpster Diver” both made by J. Knice Clothing Company and from 100% RECYCLED PLASTIC.
About the T-shirts:
The fabric content is made from 100% RECYCLED PLASTIC!!!!!!!!....WHY? The use of recycled polyester for clothing and other products lessens our need for oil, reduces waste (and the toxins required to burn it), and produces less pollution than when starting off with virgin polyester.
Penny Party - Penny-farthing, high wheel, high wheeler, and ordinary are all terms used to describe a type of bicycle with a large front wheel and a much smaller rear wheel that was popular after the boneshaker, until the development of the safety bicycle, in the 1880s. They were the first machines to be called ‘bicycles’. Although they are now most commonly known as ‘penny-farthings’, this term was probably not used until they were nearly outdated; the first recorded print reference is 1891 in Bicycling News. It comes from the British penny and farthing coins, one much larger than the other, so that the side view resembles a penny leading a farthing.
Dumpster Diver - Contains an image of a gross looking dude with flies all around him. The shirt is a heather charcoal and will be printed with a water base discharge.
