10 Bicycles // 60 Helmets, Bells, & Baskets // 29 Artists
New bicycles and accessories donated by Electra Bicycle Company
Electra Bicycle Company, a San Diego-based company and the leading lifestyle bicycle brand in the U.S., has generously donated a collection of bikes and accessories to be transformed by local artists. Artists customized the items with acrylic paint, paint pens, and tape to create truly unique, custom rideable and wearable art.
The bicycle art pieces were sold through an online auction and exhibited during Mission Fed ArtWalk to showcase the Bicycle Art Auction during their event in April 2023. Proceeds from this Charity Art Auction directly benefit our free programs for youth that do not otherwise have access to visual arts opportunities.
