Las Bicicletas

That's the name of this art installation by
Gilberto Aceves Navarro.  There are 122 bike
sculptures spread out over 10 public spaces in 
Brooklyn and lower Manhattan this summer.  
The sculptor hopes that we'll visit them all—
by bike, of course (a ten-mile loop).

[Linking back to Ruby Tuesday and Our World Tuesday.]


  1. How interesting! Will you look at the rest of the 120?

  2. Art that encourages activity is a great idea. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the pieces. You better get started. Happy Ruby Tuesday Too.

  3. I so want to take this tour! I wonder if I could do this by foot?
    I bet you could Alexa.
    ; )

    1. I bet you could too! Here's where they are: http://www.nycbikemaps.com/spokes/las-bicicletas-public-bike-art-exhibit/

  4. My apologies for butting in. But I checked out Google Maps and connecting those ten places could take upwards of three or three-and-a-half hours on foot. Of course some time could be shaved off by taking subways, buses, or taxis, I would guess. But why not get in the sprit of the thing and rent a bicycle? Just one example here. Or do as this gentleman does, get a folding bike.

  5. That would be fun to be guided around the city by following the bicycle sculptures.
