Art in City Hall

[Drawing by Shaun Deller.]

Yesterday I stopped by City Hall to check in on preparations for tonight’s Made in Portland Bike Show and Art Exhibition.

I hope you can join us (it’s from 5-8PM) because we’ve put together an unprecedented gathering of bicycle-inspired art. Here are a few teasers.

  • David “chops” Darby has three gorgeous new pieces (see below) hanging in Commissioner Adams’ lobby.
  • Renaissance man Shaun Deller, who you probably know for his popular cycling caps and Edible Plants Tour, unveiled two amazing continuous line drawings.
  • Late addition Lyla Emery Reno will show her engaging black and white images of our creative bike culture.

And don’t forget, we’ll also have:

  • the first-ever gathering of Portland’s independent bike builders.
  • a special appearance by Chris King Components (and Mr. King might show up around 6:30).
  • free pizza from Hotlips, and free beer from the Widmer Brothers (thanks Rob!).
  • a projector screening of the Tour de France (thanks to Dat).
  • a gathering of freak bikes in front of City Hall.

It’s all happening tonight from 5-8PM at 1221 SW Fourth Street in downtown Portland…see you there!

City Hall Art Show is 5 – 7 pm, per Commissioner Adams’ invite. But I’m sure folks will hang out for the bike love. I’d advise getting there early if you want some refreshments tho – you know how hungry/thirsty you get looking at art.
Dat alerts us that the Tour de France will be playing in one section of the atrium, so you can drink locally but geek globally.
