ME BIKE – The Dream Bike Festival 2007
ME BIKE – The Dream Bike Festival highlights the question: How do artists envision their dream bike?
From the ME BIKE website:
The Dream Bike concept is based on a Simpson’s episode where homers brother asked him to build his dream car which he calls the “Homer”, Homer adds all sorts of weird effect like bubble domes, fins and several horns that play “La Cucaracha”…
This year in Amsterdam style, over fifty international and nation artists, bike lovers, bike designers and bike riders, will bring their own dream bike to the ME BIKE – THE DREAM BIKE FESTIVAL at the Carhartt Store and the Westergasterrein in Amsterdam.
So, if you’re in Amsterdam this weekend, it might be cool to join the Dream Bike Festival and check out expositions of real bikes, paintings, sculptures and installations. There will be a BMX presentations, a children’s parcour, a big live painting session, outdoor and indoor cinema and lots more.
