"410 Project and Key City Bike Presents 2nd Annual Wheelworks on June 15th"

410 Project and Key City Bike Presents 2nd Annual Wheelworks June 15th

Mankato TimesWheelworks, Key City Bike, Mankato Times, 410 Project,

WheelWorks is a bicycle inspired art exhibition and awareness event that combines the action of art making and open air activities. This year’s WheelWorks is being held Saturday June 15 starting at 2pm. at 523 South Front Street, Mankato.

Throughout the day we will have activities planned that are accessible to all ages and activity levels. Starting with our first annual Art Scavenger Hunt, people will be given a map that will lead them down Riverfront Drive, through local parks, and down the river trail to find stopping points and clues consisting of art works attached to cement, light poles, and buildings.

Also, back at the 410 Project Key City volunteers will be on hand to answer any bike related questions and to help with minor repairs. There will always be activities for visitor to participate in like silkscreen t-shirts and poster, kid’s bike crafts, and helping with building sculptures created from bike parts. The night will end with music provided by Minnesota bands Crash Cuddle and The Union Suits, who will perform a mix of bluesy and electric sounds.

The Wheelworks event was very successful last year and we anticipate this year to be even more exciting. We hope to receive further backing from local and surrounding patrons. With the support of our neighbors and volunteers we can only grow as an organization and further contribute to Mankato’s Arts and Culture scene.

Crash Cuddle is an instrumental duo from the Southern Minnesota town of Mankato, composed of Garrett Lee Benson and Charles Francis Duda. Described as beastly, raw, explosive, subtle, and sonic, Crash Cuddle is marked by Benson's reliable old truck engine, precise and punchy drums, and Duda's mix of wizardry and witchery guitar work. Together, they transcend and wash the sins of all with riffs and beats most sacred.
