Trips for Kids benefit art show, Cinco de Mayo

The cycling community has a reputation for creativity — the annual Bike Art exhibits (I, II, III, IV), the Bicycle Film Festival, and the alt-bike phenomenon each attest to the restlessness that two-wheeled travelers often feel. By restlessness I mean an inability to accept the world as ordinary. Perhaps nowhere is that restlessness evident than in North Carolina, where a bicycle mechanic on the Outer Banks once said to his brother, “what else can we make with these tools?”

Danielle Riley, a Durham school teacher and editor, is sharing her art with the cycling community for the month of May. Andrea Hundredmark, Durham Public Schools teacher and Director of the Triangle chapter of Trips For Kids, says…

Danielle Riley is showing her photography for the first time EVER at The Broad Street Cafe.  Her work will be up for the month of May.  The kickoff for the show is Tuesday, May 5th at 7 pm.  There will be a wine tasting as well.

Please check out the link [sic] to learn a little about Broad Street Café, their menu and Danielle.  There is a short artist bio and some samples of some her photos on the site.

20%  of any proceeds from the sale of her work will be donated to Triangle Trips for Kids – a non-profit organization that takes children living in at-risk situations on bike rides, teaches them about cycling and how to build bikes.

To learn more about Trips for Kids, check out their website or this article written for the Herald Sun last year. The Broad St Café is located here.
