By Susi Wunsch
Contemporary art lovers are accustomed to seeing the works of Lawrence Weiner, a founder of conceptual art in the 1960s, on the walls of galleries and museums. The prolific artistís words and graphics now travel by bicycle, too. The New Museum in New York City has introduced limited edition hand-painted Pashley bicycles with applied vinyl graphics designed by Weiner. The black and bright-blue bicycles, with the word 'wheresoever' on the chainguard and skirt guards, are etch-signed by Weiner in a numbered edition of 10, plus two artist proofs. Women's Pashley Princess Sovereign and menís Roadster Sovereign models were sold through the New Museum Store and website.
