Bring Your Bikes, Tykes and the Likes: Art In Motion Needs You!

If you're anything like us, you probably have a garage full of weird and unnecessary items morosely collecting dust, but don't drag them to the curb just yet!

Join us on Saturday, October 1, 2011 for the Dallas Arts District's Art in Motion procession. Grab that jogging stroller that has henceforth lived its life in vain under a mound of dirty clothes and head down to One Arts Plaza to decorate the bleep out of it for the processional beginning at 10 a.m., featuring human powered works of art.

Got a creepy old wheelchair? A tandem bike? A Big Wheel? Of course you do.

Just get your creative on at home, or join us at 9 a.m. to utilize free supplies for all your artistic needs. Then, stick around for the processional down Flora Street and the announcement of winners for the best-decorated rides.

Don't worry if you work up an appetite, because there will be food! In addition to Jorge's Breakfast Service (contributing a portion of their proceeds will benefit Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts) there will also be food trucks on Flora Street. Art in Motion is part of the kickoff ceremony for Art in October which features free museum admission throughout the Arts District Saturday, as well as special events and food throughout the month.
