Greater Shepparton City Council is pleased to present ‘Art Bikes’, a temporary art installation in the CBD to coincide with the upcoming BMX Australia National Championships and BMX Supercross World Cup events, to be hosted in Greater Shepparton in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
Artists including Tank Art, The Glad Rappers, Dylan McIntosh Art, Three Bags Full and St Anne’s College have raided the Recovery Resource Centres and transformed and upcycled old BMX and cruiser bikes into masterpieces.
The Art Bikes will be on display during business hours in the CBD from Friday 17 May to Saturday 25 May.
Thanks to Greater Shepparton City Council and My Ride Shepparton, residents and visitors will have the chance to win a bike valued at $350 by simply snapping their photo alongside an Art Bike and posting it to social media. To be eligible to win, residents must tag @BMXAustralia and include the hashtags #VisitShepparton #Artbikes #ManyGreatThings.
At the conclusion of the BMX National Championships on 25 May the bikes will be relocated to the Shepparton Motor Museum, where they will be housed and used to form part of the Australian BMX Museum temporary exhibition which will be occurring from May 2019 until January 2020.
It is expected that the bikes will reappear in the CBD next year for the BMX Supercross World cup event.
