Inventing a Future: Robots and Machinations

When: June 9-July 18 2009

For many of us, bicycles signify physical well-being, a healthful environment, or perhaps an alternate form of civil society. But few people get as deep into bike symbolism as sculpture artist Kurt Wold, whose new exhibit, Machinations (through July 18 at Richmond Art Center) uses pedal-powered vehicles to generate discussions of gender politics, velocity, modernity, childhood, geometry, and life's wobbliness, among other things. Wold's bike installations appear in conjunction with Clayton and Betty Bailey's Robots and Watercolors, which includes more than one hundred anthropomorphic sculptures made from household appliances and scavenged materials. Check them out on Saturday, July 11, at a BBQ picnic and guided tour at the Richmond Art Center (2540 Barrett Ave.). 2-5 p.m., $5.
