Sculptcycles are back. This is the second year Montpelier’s public art project, where sculptures made totally or in part from recycled bicycle parts, are displayed throughout the downtown area, said the Rutland Herald. Subjects to date include “American Bovine Gothic,” and “Yes We Can Overcome.” There will be 19 Sculptcycles displayed over the summer. Returning artists include Rob Hitzig who is hoping to augment last year’s submission, “The Dog Walker,” with still undetermined additional animals. “I’ll have 11 bodies, could be a lot of animals,” said Rob. New artist Kate Wanner’s “Catherdral of Cycling” features stained glass bicycle wheels. The sculptures will be put up for auction at the end of the event. The project is coordinated by Montpelier Downtown Community Association and sponsored by businesses, organizations, and private entities. I guess old bikes never die; they’re just made into art.
