What’s that, you ask? The theme of this show is alternative transportation – bicycling, walking, running, no motor zone boats, trains, etc.. Velocipedes are the precursors to bicycles, usually without pedals. Shank’s Mare is a New England term for walking.
Featured are photographs, paintings, etchings, silkscreen prints and drawings by local artists of how people get around the world over, from Cuba to Miami, Germany to France, Georgia to Massachusetts.
The show is Saturday, Oct. 1, from 1-6 p.m., at Flagler Arts Space, 172 W. Flagler St., Miami.
Join us for refreshments (including bicycle-themed beer and wine), music (bicycle songs on the playlist, of course), and an open mic for those who prefer to make their own music.
The show is a fundraiser for Green Mobility Network, a charitable 501c3 organized to promote bicycling and walking in Miami-Dade County. A percentage of all sales will go to Green Mobility, with the rest going to the artists.
