Fine Art Rides a Bike?


Nuts & Bolts, railroad lanterns, an old bicycle, along with hundreds of other items, all welded together to form and amalgam of amazingly realistic movement as this piece of figurative art comes to life. Artist, Andrew Smith has created a truly unique piece of kinetic mechanical art in this sculpture titled "Long Road Home", commissioned by “Ripley’s Believe it or not“Museums, installed in Gatlinberg, TN.

Now all it needs is a tape loop and loudspeaker that repeats the words, "Sidewalk!"
