Bike to Work Day—Who’s In?

Posted on May 13th, 2011 - 12:00 PM

By Aaron Ferster

I’ve been working—and commuting—in Washington, DC since 1996 when I moved to the area from the Bronx for a job writing interpretive signs at the National Zoo.

My wife and I lived just behind the back entrance to the park. It was a five-minute ride to work, but 15-minutes home because of the big hill standing between my office and our apartment. If the traffic light at the bottom of our street was green, I could make it in without a single pedal stroke.

At that time, the notion of partaking in official “Bike to Work Day” festivities seemed almost comical. “It would take me longer to get to the event than it would to actually ride to work,” I bragged. Then a colleague told me about the t-shirts and free coffee.

I’ve been hooked ever since.

You are invited to the Inspired Art Benefit Auction, a collaboration of Cleveland artists and young Cleveland poets of the after-school program America SCORES Cleveland (SCORES). The original poetry of Cleveland kids involved in SCORES has compelled over 30 local artists to create and donate artwork to support the after-school health and literacy program. At the Benefit, students will witness their visions brought to life and artists will experience the poetry on a deeper level as select youth perform. On June 11th you too can experience the profound impact of these youths’ words.

Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, an open wine bar, and live music while bidding on one-of-a-kind artwork. The benefit auction features local artists including CPAC Fellowship Award winners Amy Casey and Stephen Yusko. For more information, visit www.InspiredArtCleveland.com.
