Presented by Dashboard

Join us for Thirsty Thursday as we welcome artist Juan Martinez and Dashboard for a presentation of the recycled pedicabs turned animal riders by Dave Eggers and Juan Martinez.

This mini-herd of animal-inspired bicycles is bringing awareness to transportation challenges faced by students. The bicycles will be on view at Georgia Tech at the Ferst Center for the Arts October 26-November 11, 2017. Atlanta Contemporary will host the bicycles November 12-November 19, 2017.
