Thursday, 4.9.15


When: Open to Close

Where: Coral Gables Museum | 285 Aragon Ave. Coral Gables, FL  33134
Miami’s bike scene is on the rise, which is why an exhibition dedicated to the art of bicycles is wholly appropriate. Aside from the usual spiel of promoting a healthier lifestyle and a more sustainable form of transportation, the focus of the exhibit “ARTcycle” is the beauty and grace of not only the bicycle but also the person riding it. The exhibition features both local and international artists working toward one common theme. The theme for this year’s exhibit is “cyclist matter.” According to the museum’s website, “ ‘ARTcycle’ aims to promote awareness, respect, and tolerance of bicyclists to motorists who are not accustomed to or educated in how to share the road.” “ARTcycle” will be on display at the Coral Gables Museum (285 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables) for three months beginning this Friday. Museum hours are Tuesday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission costs $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and $3 for children 6 and older; children under 6 and museum members get in free. Call 305-603-8067 or visit coralgablesmuseum.org.
