Description

The Good Bike is a project by Caroline Macfarlane and Vanessa Nicholas.

“The neon bike outside of the OCAD U Student Gallery was conceived as a simple art project that we hoped would beautify and energize the grim strip of Dundas Street West where we work. The bike’s bold, graphic and current aesthetic was an instant hit with passersby; and when we were ticketed by the City, support for the bike poured in from locals and from people in far flung places including Brazil and Australia. The controversy spawned THE GOOD BIKE PROJECT, a public art initiative that saves rusted bikes from the trash heap and adds colour to our cityscape. Each bike marks a site that embodies the spirit of regeneration and community that inspired us in the first place.”
