Allston-Brighton Art & Architecture Bike Tour
October 8, 2016 at 10:30 am–1:30 pm
Cycling and Visual Art Fans! Unbound Visual Arts (UVA) is excited to host its 2nd Allston-Brighton Art & Architecture Bike Tour! Come join us on two wheels to explore the rich history, creative culture and local art sector of these two vibrant neighborhoods, guided by our very own Executive Director, fine arts historian and local art expert, John Quatrale.
This 11-mile tour celebrates a vast array of exceptional public works of art from local artists, nationally-recognized and historically significant neighborhood landmarks, in addition to innovative urban planning and groundbreaking design initiatives that will help shape the future architectural landscape of Allston and Brighton.
Special for ArtWeek, participants will also get to attend a special exhibit at UVA headquarters at the end of the tour, where we will provide light refreshments and display many original works of art courtesy of several local artists from UVA’s creative community.
Bring your bicycle, water bottle, and sunblock. If you need it, there is automobile parking in the parking garage across the street at 15 Guest St. See the directions here: http://www.unboundvisualarts.org/contact-us/. Please check back here to see if the event is postponed due to inclement weather.
Some of the sites on this urban and river route that we’ll be visiting include: the New Balance World Headquarters and the training sites (under construction) for the Bruins and Celtics, WGBH headquarters, 119 Braintree St. Artist studios, Allston Depot (Pizzeria Regina), Honan-Allston Library, Harvard Ceramic Studios, Harvard Stadium, Harvard Business School, the historic St. Gabriel’s Monastery, Brighton Library, the Christian Herter Park and Center and the historic Speedway race track complex and many individual public art installations.
