Artbike at Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History

Original post, Bicycle built for two, written by Richard Masoner, from with this commentary:

An interesting artbike seen at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in an exhibit about love. I asked if this bike is ridable, but the museum staff would not let me test it.

This bike might be a metaphor for relations as a power struggle in which each person pulls the other to his or her direction.  The “stronger” partner “wins,” but it’s exhausting and eventually futile for both. What a drag, huh?

The Museum of Art and History (MAH) is totally cool and you should visit if you’re in the area. You can see this bike in the “All You Need Is Love” exhibit running through July 29 2012. There’s also a gift shop featuring locally made crafts and prints. Little know fact: MAH Director Nina Simon is a total, hard core bike nerd.
