You're Invited To Help Paint Bike New York's White Container, Come Show Your Creativity With Biking On Roosevelt Island Theme - Last Day To Register Is June 6

Bike New York's Roosevelt Island Community Outreach Manager Caitlin Goodspeed sends the following invitation to you.

Bike New York Paints!
In partnership with RIVAA
Saturday, June 14, 2014
10am – 2pm

Calling artists of all ages! The Bike New York container has arrived underneath the Helix Ramp (next to Gristedes) and it’s ready to be painted!

In partnership with The Roosevelt Island Visual Arts Association (RIVAA), we’ll be painting the container on Saturday, June 14 from 10am – 2pm. Registered participants will get their own space to paint. Brushes and paint will be provided. Children under the age of 9 must be accompanied by an adult.

The theme of the project is “Biking on Roosevelt Island” so we’d love to see images that bring this theme to life, whether it’s an abstract drawing of the Roosevelt Island tram or a simple replica of your favorite bicycle. The more creativity and color, the better!

To register for your space on the container, please email Caitlin Goodspeed (Community Outreach Manager for Roosevelt Island) at or call her at 212-870-2075. The last day to register is Friday, June 6, 2014. Once you’ve successfully registered you will receive a confirmation email with more details.
