    We are so lucky to have some amazing resident creatives here at 400 W Rich! Check out @orewiler.art @bike.sculpture

    Originally designed in 2018 - @bike.sculpture by @400westrich artist @orewiler.art - with newly infused neon lights - to be installed on the moon in 2023….who would like to see this in downtown Columbus?! The concept is infused with donated recycled bikes from our communities and bike enthusiasts.

    “The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.”
    ― Deng Ming-Dao
