Cyclepedia

Iconic Bicycle Design

JUN 8 – SEP 8, 2013

Drawn from the collection of Vienna-based designer and bike aficionado Michael Embacher, this special exhibition features some 40 bicycles, each chosen by Embacher as examples of pivotal moments in the evolution of bicycle design. The exhibition will include racing, mountain, single speed, touring, tandem, urban, folding, cargo, curiosities, and children’s bicycles.

Cyclepedia is the third entry in the Museum’s design-oriented exhibition series. Preceded by China Design Now and the Allure of the Automobile, the exhibition will be accompanied by a full-color publication described by the London Sunday Times as the most comprehensive and visually satisfying book of bicycle portraits ever published; and an iPad App, rated App of the Week in the UK iTunes store.

Dubbed “the vanguard of American cycling” by Bicycling Magazine, the city of Portland is the most appropriate, and only, American venue to host this exhibition. No other city in America has more cyclists per capita.

Related programming will include public workshops, tours and lectures showcasing Portland’s internationally recognized community of bicycle designers and builders.
