The Davis Art Center and Paint Bike Fun are collaborating to create a community mural in downtown Davis on the wall of Davis Wheelworks at Third and F streets. The project is part of the Art Center’s 2013 Discovery Art Program, “Momentum: Art in Action, Creativity in Motion.”

Community members of all ages are invited to contribute to a “Bike Fun” mural that will celebrate all the ways we enjoy bikes and bike-riding in Davis. Lead artist Danielle Fodor is soliciting images both realistic and fantastic — from pictures of actual people and places to imaginary creatures whizzing along on bizarre contraptions.

How do you have fun on your bike? What is the most fun you can imagine while bike-riding? Fodor asks that you share your bike fun mural ideas in any form: drawings, collages, photos, poems or just a few words.

Send your bike fun art to [email protected] or drop it off at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St., before June 8. Artwork submitted will be displayed at the Art Center in June, as well as in an online gallery and could end up as part of the final mural.

Local residents can take a more active part in the overall mural by attending a free mural design workshop from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 15, at the Art Center. With Fodor’s guidance, participants will view the bike art submitted and work together to combine the contributed ideas into a single design.

Even though there is no fee for this workshop, those who wish to attend should call 530-756-4100 to ensure a space. All ages are welcome, but children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a parent.

There also will be opportunities for artists age 5 and older to help paint the final mural on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in July, and the entire community will be invited to celebrate the mural’s completion at a downtown Bicycle Arts Festival on Saturday, Aug. 17.

The Bike Fun mural project is supported by the James Irvine Foundation, Genentech, the city of Davis Street Smarts program and Davis Downtown.
