Arts@Tech Presents:The Spirit of the Animals is in the Wheels by Dave Eggers and Juan Martinez

October 27-November 11

Imagine an aluminum bison trundling across Tech Parkway! Dashboard brings to campus two pedal-powered beasts created by artist and author Dave Eggers and metal artist Juan Martinez. The sculptural metal cycles, part of a mini-herd of human-powered vehicles, bridge the natural world to the world built by human ingenuity. Eggers is an American artist and the author of several books including The Circle, What is the What, and Heroes of the Frontier. Juan Martinez is a Detroit metal artist who creates fantastical, functional creations.
