**EVENT CANCELLED, BEING RESCHEDULED FOR THE SPRING
All Steer Initiative, a grassroots bike arts collective, in partnership with the Martin Luther King Drive Business Improvement District are hosting a Civil Rights Bike Tour on Saturday, November 3rd.
“The tour will focus on several historical points of interest including, the site where the 1967 race riots began, the original house of the NAACP Youth Council and current positive movements to encourage growth and safety in the BID. The tour and ride are free of charge. Food will be provided after the event as we hope to encourage community discussion and information sharing regarding grassroots initiatives in the BID. We hope you’ll join us.”
The bike tour is meeting at 2212 North Doctor Martin Luther King Drive, just south of North Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive. Come early at 10am for registration and bike safety lessons from the Wisconsin Bike Fed, or if you need a bike for the ride, courtesy of Dream Bikes. The bike tour begins at 11am.

CENTER [was] “an artist run exhibition space in Milwaukee, Wisconsin dedicated to showcasing ideas through ideas and actions. CENTER functions with an indiscriminate range of practices, and elevates these practices to a common platform where they can be experienced, discussed, and linked in a productive manner.”
CENTER used to occupy the 2nd floor of 631 E. Center, which was also home to American Fantasy Classics, Green Gallery and Joe’s Auto Garage. On July 17th, a tragic fire misplaced many individuals of their homes and artist studio spaces. In under three months, and with the support of a community behind them, many of these artists are back on their feet and situated with new homes and studio spaces.
Sharing members of CENTER, All Steer Initiative is a testament to the hard work and inspirational commitment that these artists and individuals have to their community.
