Insights: Lee Stoetzel - Big Bike

Philadelphia-based artist Lee Stoetzel will install a 10-foot x 8-foot high bicycle in the Insights Window on Race. Twice the scale of a regular bike, Big Bike is made entirely of Pecky cypress, a naturally degraded wood from his home state of Florida. The wood emphasizes the beauty and detail of the object's original design, the unusual textural quality of the wood, and the intricate craftsmanship of its re-creation.
From May through October in conjunction with Bicycle: people + ideas in motion, the InSights series of exhibitions featured in the Window on Race Street gallery will feature rotating solo exhibitions of works inspired by the bicycle by Philadelphia-based artists.
