"Artists are problem solvers. They bring new solutions to problems of surface, color, and design.”
The Minneapolis Institute of Art approached Handsome Cycles with the opportunity to create three custom bicycles inspired by masterpieces of their collection, bringing the works of art into a modern context. The project brought together some of the Twin Cities’ most notable designers and artisans: KNOCK, TREAT AND COMPANY, Peacock Groove, and Dirt Designs Graphic. The result is three stunning, fully functional bicycles that challenge what a bike can be, and bring new life to some of the MIA’s most famous pieces.
