NYC Events: SRAM pART Bicycle Component Art Exhibition & Chrome Bag Launch Party

SRAM pART bicycle component art sculptures to benefit World Bicycle Relief charity

Sram's Best Friend, by Daniel Michael Bertelli

SRAM’s pART Project has seen artists come up with some pretty stellar sculptures using bicycle components and bits over the past few years. The latest collection doesn’t disappoint, and it’ll be on display November 29 in New York City at the Cedar Lake Theatre.

This round, you’ll find 90 pieces from more than 80 artists ranging from whimsical to bad ass and everything in between. We’ve put a few of our favorites here for your viewing pleasure. At the event, they’ll auction them off to raise money for World Bicycle Relief, which acquires and delivers bicycles to developing areas throughout the globe to help people improve access to work, food, water and education. Since 2005, they’ve delivered more than 115,000 bikes while also helping develop local assembly, repair and support services to keep things moving along.

Looking for something to do tonight? Check out the Chrome x Hirotoshi1 Tokyo Series bag launch at their NYC hub. Flyer and details posted at the bottom, so scroll through the bike sculptures after the break to get to the par-tay…

Best use of SRAM products ever.

Free Wheeling is unbelievable. Beautiful

So that’s what they’ve been doing with all those warranty parts…

I have seen some of these art pieces in person. It’s well worth going to the show. They are unreal; ten times more impressive in person (partly because some of them are HUGE). Bravo to SRAM for coming up with the idea. I’m a sucker for gear companies partnering with artists. I know all about the guy who painted the design on my Arbor snowboard. Anyway, go to the show!

Better used for art than riding that’s for sure.

“Lion” looks more like the alien from the movie Predator. cool stuff

I also like “Free Wheeling”. Really awesome. I have a ton of old bike parts so when I get bored this winter, I’ll see what I could make out of them.
