Pedaling to Progress: Bicycles from 1800s-1920s

Our first exhibition of the year is all about cycling and the countless ways that bicycles have impacted the way people travel. As modern designers continue to advance the industry through cutting-edge technology, cycling culture at its core has always been grounded in social change, like helping the masses shift away from animal power, driving the initial force behind major road improvements and creating new independence for women and low-income families.

Explore the golden age of this two-wheeled machine so versatile and liberating that it permanently changed the landscape of American economics and consumer culture!
