The Bike Stops Here: Bike Artist Designed Bicycle Racks

Request for Proposals from Utah Artists
Application Deadline, Friday, April 18, 2014 by 5:00 p.m.
Commission: $3,000 per bike rack (artists may submit 2 designs for consideration)

Seeing the rapid growth of bicycling in Salt Lake City and the desire to encourage more people to choose cycling as a transportation option, there is an essential need and desire for safe and secure bicycle parking. To that end, and in the ongoing effort to weave art into the fabric of our urban infrastructure, the Salt Lake Art Design Board is seeking proposals from Utah artists to design and fabricate bicycle racks that are identifiable, functional, and imaginative.

The Bike Stops Here Request for Proposals
