Papergirl Birmingham Distribution Ride

On Saturday 28th April I took part in the Papergirl Birmingham Distribution Ride. As explained in my previous blog post on the subject Papergirl is about delivering artwork on your bike around the city to an unsuspecting public. Earlier in the week there was an exhibition of the work. Craig Bush made this awesome video documenting the exhibition night. All of the artworks were then rolled up ready for the distribution ride!

Aside from the occasional rejection of artwork, the public responded quite well to strangers offering them rather vague-looking rolls of paper, even if they did contain great art inside!

One of the lucky winners even joined us on our journey on their skateboard

Aside from a few people who opened their rolls of art in front of us there really is no way of knowing who got what piece of artwork. I’d be interested to know who go my artwork! Regardless, it was a great ride around the city and a very unique way of taking art to the masses,

Well done again to Kate Grundy for organising it and you should probably follow the Papergirl Birmingham website if you want to know more 😉
