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.
