Discovery Green and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society: Lone Star present ART BIKE 2010, on view March 22 through April 25
ART BIKE 2010 is a month-long installation of over 20 bikes that have been transformed by local artists to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis and the National MS Society: Lone Star. Houston’s top ranking artistic and creative minds transformed used bikes into a living exhibit with the hope of providing a visual representation for Society’s theme of “keep moving.”. Artists include Natali Leduc, Sandi Seltzer Bryant, Nicola Parente and John Berry transform bikes to raise funds for MS; see their creations and 20 more works by Houston notables at Discovery Green.
Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. There is no cure, and MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S., and 2.5 million worldwide.
