with UAMA, Catalyst Studios, Living Streets Alliance, and the Laboratory for Tree-Ring Research

Color your Saturday with community + art!

Center for Creative Photography is teaming up with Cyclovia Remix, University of Arizona Museum of Art, Catalyst Studios, and Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research for a bike ride and pop-up party. Food, art, plants, and science collide. Enjoy music, snacks, pop-up galleries, special exhibitions and take home handheld terrariums and shadow art sunprints.

Cyclovia Remix will host a group bike ride, meeting at 6th Ave and 7th street at 1pm and making the journey to the Arts Oasis on the University of Arizona campus. Find more information about the bike route and RSVP here.

Join for the group bike ride, or meet at the pop-up event on Olive Rd north of 2nd St. 

On the front patio at the Center for Creative Photography, community members, families, and students can make shadow art sunprints and pick up a free CCP collection coloring book. You can also shop CCP’s front porch book sale - CCP has reorganized our spaces over the last year to prepare for exciting renovations to our collection storage and upgrades to our Volkerding Study Center, and that means lots of new and used books need new homes. We will have art and photography books for sale, plus some random reads at great prices.

Inside the gallery, visit the latest multimedia installation, trees stir in their leaves. (free and open to the public), and chat with Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research conservators demonstrating how forensics techniques are used to investigate art and natural history collections. 

  • Conservation demonstration, book sale, and craft activities at CCP will begin at 1pm

Visitors of all ages can participate in family gallery guides and activities at the University of Arizona Museum of Art. Any visitor who shows their bike helmet at the UAMA admissions desk will receive a special discount. As always, the UAMA is free for youth under 18, and UArizona students, staff, and faculty with a Cat Card. This is the last weekend to see the exhibition “The Art of Food” before it closes.

Students from the Catalyst Studios at the University of Arizona Libraries will teach the public about seeds and plants, and attendees can walk away with hand-held planter terrariums made using recycled materials.
