Join Artscape Gibraltar Point in putting the pedal to your paintbrush with our inaugural Winter Island 2018 public workshop & event, hosted by Artist-In-Residence, Jeff Nachtigall.
For this one-day-only project, Nachtigall has adapted his Mobile Painting Device to turn a set of specially modified bikes and trikes, into ride-able paintbrushes.
Hop on a bike, make your mark, and contribute to the creation of a large-scale mural celebrating the unique bicycle culture of the Toronto Island Community!
