  • Autumn in Bonham was a success again this year, but one of the new events in conjunction with the bike rally was the Bicycle Sculpture Challenge. The challenge was offered by the Creative Arts Center not only to promote interest in the rally but to bring art into the mix. After the contest/challenge, most of the sculptures were donated to the center for auction as a fundraiser, and the Silent Auction began last week and will run through December 14. Some of the art is suitable for the home, some is great as yard art and one little colorful bike is functional and can be ridden.
