Heartland B-cycle Art Bikes Project

Joslyn Art Museum’s Kent Bellows Mentoring Program and The Union for Contemporary Art's Action Brigade collaborated with Heartland Bike Share, the nonprofit operator of Heartland B-cycle, on the Art Bikes Project. Students at Joselyn’s Kent Bellows Mentoring Program & program staff, designed 10 bikes which became moving art within the Heartland B-cycle system. The Union for Contemporary Art's Action Brigade finished their bikes in Fall 2020 after a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic and now have 8 bikes in our fleet.

Part art, part public transportation, the bikes are for both riders and passersby to enjoy. You can check out these bikes throughout the Heartland B-cycle system. If you get the chance to ride an art bike, we'd love to see your photos! Please share the with #HeartlandArtBikes & tag Heartland B-cycle. We can be found on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter

We are thankful for the support from the Better Bike Share Partnership, who provided funding for artist recognition on this project. We are planning more ways to highlight the artists of these bikes and their work.
