MIA unveils three art-inspired bicycles


To commemorate its 100 year anniversary, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA) commissioned Handsome Cycles to bring some of the museum's most celebrated art pieces to life in the form of three custom bicycles. The bikes took inspiration from Claude Monet's Grainstack, Sun in the Mist, Frank Stella's Tahkt-i-Sulayman, Variation II, and Hans Ledwinka's 1948 Tatra T-87 sedan.

PSFK writes:
"Each of the three bikes are fully functional and ridable. Although, like with BMW's art car series, the custom paint and details on these one-of-one machines make them a bit more fragile. A commemorative MIA 100 year anniversary bike is within reach though. Handsome has produced a limited edition bike for women and men that doesn’t actually cost museum artwork prices."
