Bicycle 2 Art Day

Class project turns into a piece of art:
"More than 30 students and other members of the community took a bicycle tour of campus and learned about the art sculptures displayed at various locations. . . . Ali Wood, a senior from Springfield studying art, was the creator behind the event. Wood is part of an independent study class and came up with this idea for a project after collaborating with the museum's exhibit designer Nate Steinbrink."
