Bike parts into art… into aid
We here at Zipp Speed Weaponry are inspired by World Bicycle Relief and its work to bring reliable transportation to people in rural Africa.
That’s why we’re spreading the word about the SRAM pART PROJECT – and telling you how you can own a piece of this innovative artwork, and support a great cause.
Here’s how it works: SRAM found accomplished artists from across the United States and gave each a box of 100 high-performance bike components. The artists were challenged to transform the parts into art – their creations are being sold in an online auction to benefit World Bicycle Relief.
The SRAM pART PROJECT creations were displayed at the Interbike national bicycle show this fall. They also will be displayed in a juried exhibition in Chicago. The artist receiving top honors in the juried exhibition will be awarded a trip to Africa to visit people whose lives have been changed by the gift of a World Bicycle Relief bike.
