Party! Keep Moving at Expo 72

@ Expo 72

72 E Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60602

Opening Friday, November 2nd, from 6:30PM - 8:30PM

On view through Sunday, March 3rd

Just before the turn of the century, the popularity of the bicycle in America was at an apex and Chicago-based manufacturers shops were producing the majority of American-made bicycles.

However, in just a few years the industry was a shell of its former self, as consumer focus shifted to cars, planes, and surviving the Great Depression. Keep Moving explores how bicycle design in Chicago contributed to the early popularity of bicycles in America, their survival through the 20th century, and their resurgence today.

This exhibition is a pop-up, located at Expo 72. We’re excited about the move and hope you are as well!

This exhibition is presented as part of Art Design Chicago, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art exploring Chicago’s art and design legacy, with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation. Additional support for this exhibition comes from the Chicago Community Trust.

Curated by Lauren Boegen.
