Art by Bike

These Art Baskets are a program of RIDE Solutions, the Arts Commission, and Roanoke City Libraries. Students at Raleigh Court and Main Branch were provided with blank baskets and encouraged to let their imaginations run wild. By riding these bikes, you are helping spread the art created by these young people throughout the Roanoke Valley.
