FFArtRide Photos from May’s Boogie Nights

June 3, 2010

To get you ready for this month’s First Friday ArtRide “Get Lei’d” here are some photos from last month’s FFArtRide, Boogie Nights. (Thanks Daniel Boggs and Helen O’Neil for taking and sharing the photos with us!)

About 15 of us met up at the Artists Union Gallery where California Street meets the sea. We checked out the show there, curated and featuring work by gauvin around the theme of “homeless” then we rolled to the taped tunes from the player in Grant’s bike basket plus some banging on the cowbell from me and bike bells accompaniment too.

We started as usual at the Ventura Beach Promenade, road up the coast on the bike path to the Ventura River Trail, turned right on Main and rolled up Ventura Avenue to stop at Bell Arts Factory, then Project 643.

As you can see, my small boy is dressed in his Disco best and riding his seafoam green bikergo while I am in my blue velvet exclamation point dress and riding my hot pink bikergo.

Our rule is not to allow children under 8 to ride along but I didn’t have much of a choice: it was my boy and he wanted to ride and his dad was still recovering from breaking his C2 vertabrae Feb. 5.

I learned the hard way that it just doesn’t work to have a child that age ride alone–there are too many distractions, too much excitement! He could keep up with us no problem but he kept losing control and crashing.

Next we cruised Main a few times; stops included the CSUCI Gallery at California Street. At 8pm, some of us went to WAV while others continued on Main to midtown to attend 5×5 then they rejoined us at WAV for the Boogie Nights Disco Ball.

In the next post, I’ll put up some photos from the Disco Ball at the WAV where we enjoyed several kinds of delicious handcrafted beer including stout, porter, and ale in growlers donated by Anacapa Brewery (thanks Danny!)

See you Friday at 5:30 outside the Artists Union Gallery, 330 S. CA St in good old Ventucky! And if not this First Friday, maybe next month for Ventucky Vice!
