Bike Fun community mural

I am writing to follow up on the lovely article about my Indiegogo campaign for the Bike Fun community mural, with a big “Thank You” to all the kind individuals who donated money in response to the article — to date, we have raised $590 of the $2,500 goal.

I also wanted to acknowledge the local organizations who have supported this community-designed and -painted mural from the first moments. We received grant funding (through the Davis Art Center’s Discovery Art program) from the Irvine Foundation and Genentech. The Bike Fun mural was directly supported by the city of Davis’ Street Smarts and Ride Walk Davis programs, as well as Davis Downtown, who see the value of promoting cycling through vibrant, joyous public art.

The city of Davis has been incredibly helpful in creating this community mural by introducing me to the building owners, to local bicycle advocates and by sharing their wisdom about logistics of making public art downtown. Thank you especially to Rachel Hartsough of Street Smarts, Bob Bowen, Carrie Dyer and Nik Joshi for their time.

Finally, the project is still $1,910 short of our fundraising goal, which would cover the full costs of the project. If you love seeing community-based public art downtown, please consider making a small donation through Indiegogo at: igg.me/at/bikefundavis.

Many thanks!

Danielle Fodor, muralist

    This seems like a great project and I am all for it. However, would it not make more sense to have a bicycle mural on the walls of the (city-owned) US Bicycle Hall of Fame building at 3rd and B? That pukey pink stucco does not add to the ambience of our core area in my opinion. I would love to see its entire exterior covered by a bike-themed murals.
