UHDPS Donates to ColorCycle



Supporting the arts, whether it is with the University of Houston or within the Houston community, can and always will be a positive and rewarding experience. On March 31, 2010, the Department of Public Safety got a chance to experience that first hand. The department received an inquiry from Samuel Jacobson, Rice University Art Project student, regarding the unused bicycles which our department collects for various reasons. Mr. Jacobson received a grant to create an art project with unused and broken bicycles. The project was called ColorCycle. Mr. Jacobson said that on April 4, 2010, 100 volunteers would gather at Rice University and would be given a can of paint and a bicycle. At noon on April 4th, all the bicycles would be painted at the same time and then distributed around the Rice University campus for display. The Department of Public Safety thought this would be a great way to collaborate with Rice University and decided to move forward with the donation of 37 inoperable bicycles for the ColorCycle art project. The very next day Mr. Jacobson arrived at the department and loaded 37 used, broken and rusty bicycles into a rented “U Haul” truck.

The city of Houston is a very culturally diverse community and being involved in an artistic endeavor promotes the creative side of the University of Houston and the Department of Public Safety. The practical side of this project was that the department was able to easily dispose of 37 unused and rusty bicycles.
