Students from participating HISD schools proudly pedal and accompany their art bikes along a pre-determined path within MacGregor Park, as families and community members cheer them on from the sidelines. Later in the day, everyone is invite to the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art campus for an evening concert and Art Bike celebration with a special performance from Grammy-award winning legendary bassist, experimental musician, and former Prince bandmate MonoNeon.

We welcome you, your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors, to design and create an Art Bike of your own. Everyone will have a chance to participate as we celebrate diversity through artistic interpretations of how the outdoors connect us - embracing our health, our environment, our families, our friends, our civic pride, and our creativity.
