In a recent feature, the Chicago Tribune delves into the Design Museum of Chicago’s new exhibition, Keep Moving: Designing Chicago's Bicycle Culture. Writer Steve Johnson provides a close view of the assortment of cycles on display, lending historical perspective to their design evolution and eventual mass popularity.
Tanner Woodford, Founder and Executive Director of the Design Museum of Chicago, discusses how the show fits into the museum’s programming vision, while Keep Moving curator Lauren Boegen speaks to the “two-fold” perspective—bicycles as both innovation and social symbols—offered in it.
“Keep Moving is a compact yet rich and rewarding show from the young Design Museum of Chicago...The exhibition shows how bicycles began as playthings of the leisure class, costing thousands in today’s dollars.” – Chicago Tribune
