Two weeks ago, we were partying with friends and friendly strangers at our favourite bar, The Avro in Queen Street East. The cupcake-laden, beer-doused evening was organized to launch THE GOOD BIKE PROJECTpublication and film, and to bring together everyone who helped us realize that city-wide neon vision. The publication is a self published wrap-up designed by the talented Andy Callahan. Its pages include photos, press excerpts, write-ups for each of THE GOOD BIKE PROJECT’s sixty painted bikes and an essay on our experience as artists on a politically charged project. The film, which was produced by The Public Assembly, is just plain awesome. We’re so thankful to have footage from that crazy, wonderful summer that connected us with so many amazing, community-minded people in Toronto. Things certainly felt cosy at The Avro, and we’d like to thank the bar’s dynamic duo, Bruce and Rachel, for hosting us that night and for taking such good care of us always. Cheers again to everyone who came out to our party, and to all of those who lent their hands and hearts to THE GOOD BIKE PROJECT! *** FYI, the publication is available for sale at the OCAD U Student Gallery (and will soon also be available at Art Metropole).
