Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg’s New Shop Selected For Mural
We’re excited to announce that the RBH shop has been selected for the 2021 Mural Works by SprocketWorks. Once again Harrisburg-based artist, Ralphie Seguinot, will be designing murals to brighten our new location.
If you’d like to volunteer to help out, just let us know.
July 6 & 7 – we will need help preparing the stencils for the murals.
July 10 & 11 – the building needs to be primed and painted in preparation for the murals.
July 13 to 16 – the artist will be doing his magic and creating the new murals.
We’ll be posting pictures on Facebook as we make progress. Check it out.
Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg has a long-standing collaborative relationship with the local artists in our community.
Sprocket Mural Works, a citywide mural project, which works with neighborhoods, artists and organizations to create vibrant community murals across Harrisburg helped us decorate one of our older buildings. And we are on their list for a mural creation for our permanent home on Chestnut Street during the Sprocket Mural Works 2021 Harrisburg Mural Fest.
We also collaborate with area school art departments. One such collaboration was the first Art of the Bike art show curated by Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg and held during the 2018 Tour de Belt. High school art students from the area displayed works of art – created by using recycled bicycle parts! Participating students then sold their artwork and donated some proceeds to Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg.
The second Art of the Bike show was held at the June 2019 Tour de Belt ride event, which benefited the Capital Area Greenbelt Association. Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg hopes to continue providing opportunities for art and bicycles to come together.
