We closed down River Rocks in fabulous form. Between the local artists and interactive art projects on Saturday to the grand finale Art Bike Brigade on the 9th. Kids and adults had a lot of fun. The truck, however, may never be the same.
Art Bikes Rock N' Stuff
Our students ages 11-15 completed eight art bikes in just two weeks! Their work continues to be on display in the community. Stop by and see some of these amazing sculptures at The IMAX Theater until November 9th. A special thanks to our teachers, Natali and Smitty, our talented students, and three amazing team leaders: sculptor, Roger Halligan; bicycle race mechanic and wheelbuilder; Merlyn Townley, artist Rondell Crier, and Lafayette High School art teacher Liz Hornik.

A big thank you to the Chattanooga community too.
Businesses, non-profit organizations, and the community have stepped up and provided some amazing support for our program. Sculptor, Isaac Duncan iii, opened his studio up to accommodate our workshops. Zac Holford with The Main Street Bike Co-op has provided bike parts and assistance. CCA teacher, Chad Burnette, dropped off bikes and is assisting. Greg Ross, owner of Estate of Confusion, and artist, Peggy Petrey have provided some really cool embellishments. Outdoor Chattanooga hosted our student reception and bike ride in the park. Also, Townsend Atelier and The CampHouse have provided space for our day one activities. Thank you for all your help and hard work!
