Many thanks for bike mural

From page A6 | October 31, 2013 |

I am writing to thank the wonderful people and organizations who made the Davis Bike Fun mural possible this summer. The finished piece, titled “Flying through the Flatlands,” can be seen on the corner of Third and F streets. It was realized through a partnership between the Davis Art Center’s Discovery Art program (sponsored by the Irvine Foundation) and Paint Bike Fun.

We owe a big thank-you to our lead sponsors: Genentech, the city of Davis’ Street Smarts and Ride Walk Davis programs, and the Davis Art Center, for helping create place-based art that reflects the values of our community and for providing opportunities for children and adults to make art together throughout the spring and summer.
We also received support from Davis Downtown, Hibbert Lumber and The Paint Chip (as well as from friends and passersby, who chipped in for paint brushes, masking tape and food!). Finally, thank you to more than 40 kind people who donated in person or through Paint Bike Fun’s Indiegogo campaign, and helped raise more than $2,500 to fully fund the project.
Finally, this mural was designed and painted with the support of community volunteers. Thank you to the hundreds of kids, families and grown-ups who sent drawings, photos and words depicting “bike fun.”

Thank you to the local personalities who inspired us with their heartfelt cycle-friendly lifestyles and encouraging comments. Thank you to all of the volunteer painters for days spent organizing paint and materials, painting and repainting the mural, washing brushes and laughing together.

Thank you for all the volunteers who made the Bike Fun Fest a wonderful community event to celebrate the close of the mural. Finally, thank you to the Davis Art Center staff, city of Davis staff, the Winger and Ames families and the Paint Bike Fun team for your assistance on myriad tiny details.

It has been an honor and a delight to work in downtown Davis, where the public is so friendly and art-loving, surrounded by fabulous public art. Thank you!
