Meet The Artists: Downtown Bike Tour with Reinigungsgesellschaft is Saturday, May 26th


MEET THE ARTISTS! Downtown public art BIKE TOUR Saturday

WHAT: In cooperation with the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA), Reinigungsgesellschaft has created “The Bus to the Future,” a temporary public art project that renames Downtown... Columbus bus shelters with issue-oriented titles and poses the question, “What would you call your bus line that leads your city to the future?”

Reinigungsgesellschaft will discuss their process while touring the sites near Broad and High streets on bicycle, giving their insights into the future of our community.

WHO: International artists Henrik Mayer and Martin Keil of Reinigungsgesellschaft

WHEN: Saturday, May 26, 10 a.m.

WHERE: Bike riders will meet at Cafe Brioso, 14 E. Gay Street in Downtown Columbus.

INFO: “The Bus to the Future” is one of 13 public art projects in FINDING TIME: Columbus Public Art 2012, which is taking place in public spaces, plazas, parks, streets, and alleys in a 360-acre area of the downtown surrounding the Statehouse and along the riverfront. These public projects will transform the downtown into an open-air gallery, where innovative and surprising public art accessible to all will create memorable experiences for downtown workers, residents and visitors. Project partners have commissioned 13 temporary site-responsive public artworks by international, national, and local artists who reflect the broad range of contemporary public art in multiple forms and media. Several projects involve multiple artists. More than 50 artists will create works over the course of the bicentennial year. Participating artists will create works about time with the goal of inspiring the community to think about their city in relationship to time, the chronology of life, and the notion of temporary and permanent.
