SRAM pART Project: Park City, Utah
Cycling and art--two things that define Park City, Utah. It’s a perfect combination. Another great pairing? World Bicycle Relief and Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah. On July 26, these elements all came together as 25 artists were handed a box with the same 100 SRAM parts and, using only their imagination and creative ability, created sculptures that are on display at the Kimball Art Center through August 25. The pieces are also being auctioned off on eBa starting August 6, with proceeds to benefit World Bicycle Relief and Kimball Art Center. People from the community came to enjoy food and refreshments while meeting some of the artists and viewing the pieces on display. The exhibit is open to the public through August 25.
SRAM has supported World Bicycle Relief through pART Project over the past three years. Since it's debut in Chicago in 2011, pART Project has raised over $200,000 for the cause
Claire Geiger of World Bicycle Relief observed, “Seeing artists be so creative with parts that you usually only see on bikes is simply amazing. It's so fun seeing the different directions these artists have taken with their pieces and meeting the artists who donated so much time to making this such a success.”
SRAM and WBR want to thank Hilary Nitka, who worked with the Kimball Art center to provide a perfect venue for this event (which will display through August 25) and Angie Pettit worked as the project manager to ensure a well organized successful event.
