The Spirit of the Animals Is in the Wheels

Exhibition Website

Nov 4 2016 - Jan 1 2017

A bison barrels down Mack Ave. and a 12-point buck hoofs it from Eastern Market to the Boggs School. Their unusual gaits—paws attached to a bicycle's front wheel—and their enthusiastic passengers—school-aged Detroiters—are not the only reason these pedicabs-turned-wildlife are turning heads. Artist and author Dave Eggers, along with metal artist Juan Martinez, have built a herd of animal-inspired vehicles for this exhibition focused on the intersection of transportation and education in order to build awareness and solutions to transportation challenges faced by students.
