75th Anniversary of Bicycle Day

April 19, 2018 will be the 75th Anniversary of Bicycle Day, the fated day in 1943 when the Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann took the world's first intentional acid trip. The date is called Bicycle Day because Hofmann rode home from his lab on his bike as the psychedelic effects of the substance began to take hold. 

Visionary artists Alex and Allyson Grey will be commemorating the 75th anniversary of this historic bicycle ride by hosting parties on a three-city tour of the United States that begins in San Francisco on April 19th, goes to Los Angeles on the 20th, and culminates in New Orleans on the 21st. 

To get everyone's bicycle gears turning, ShakedownGallery.com is giving away an Artist Proof of the sold out Alex Grey "Oversoul" blotter art design. There's no purchase necessary to enter the drawing and the winner will get the print shipped to their front door at no expense.
