The American Craft Council's Library Salon Series is a series of free public presentations exploring craft, making, and art. Our next event is Hand-Built Bicycles with Erik Noren of Peacock Groove Cycles, beginning at 7pm on September 12 at the American Craft Council Library.
Forget Portland, Minneapolis is the number one bicycling city in the United States, and we have the homegrown, custom-bicycle building community to go with our place on top of the podium. Combining poetry and engineering, the design and welding of custom bicycles is riding high on the resurgence of interest in domestic manufacture and personal customization, and the work of Erik Noren of Peacock Groove Cycles is among the most innovative and distinctive in the field of American bicycles. Join the American Craft Council's director of education Perry Price in conversation with Minneapolis’ most infamous bike frame builder for a look at the work of this genre-defying craftsman.
This event is free and open to the public. However, seating is limited.
