ROLLBIKEART.COM and the Smokebrush Foundation for the Arts are proud to announce the 8th Annual ROLL Bike Art Festival. ROLL 2012 “Full Circle” will run Friday, August 3rd through Saturday, October 20th at 219 W. Colorado Avenue, hosted by Marmalade at Smokebrush. Opening Night is Friday, August 3, from 5 to 8 PM. The event is free and open to the public, but donations are encouraged.
The ROLL tradition began when the Smokebrush Gallery hosted 4 international exhibits from 2005-2008. Since parting ways, ROLL was exhibited in Manitou Springs at the BAC. ROLL now returns to the Depot Arts District in Downtown Colorado Springs and is emphasizing Colorado Artists’ work. The 8th Annual exhibit is entitled “Full Circle” as ROLL returns to its Colorado roots.
ROLL features the most innovative cyclery in Colorado, and 2012 is no exception. A performance by local Flatland BMX Pro James McGraw will stun the young at heart and raise the bar for teen BMXers. Pikes Peak Community Foundation’s Mobile Music Project will allow participants to become a part of the evening’s entertainment. Volunteers will operate a pedal powered stage featuring music by local group “Mango fan Django.”
