If you were lucky enough to be at Interbike this year, you probably came across the SRAM pART PROJECT displays in a few places while walking the show floor. Now you have a chance to own one for yourself.
SRAM commissioned 50 artists to create these amazing works of art out of the contents of a box of 100 parts from the SRAM family of brands. The 50 sculptures were displayed at Interbike in individual cases mounted on pedestals in two big displays on the street level lining the main aisle and in a space at the very front right corner of the upper level. A smaller group was set up in SRAM’s own booth.
The goal of the project is to raise funds for World Bicycle Relief at an auction of the pieces to be held in Chicago later this month following the exhibition in Las Vegas. Here are a three examples from the project. To see the invitation for the auction from SRAM, scroll down past these examples of the sculptures. Follow the link below to the project’s website to see all of the pieces in higher resolution and learn more about the artists.
