From the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo :
Next spring , The Arts Commission will install a new round of creative bicycle racks in the Warehouse District, continuing the 2012 implementation of the program, which brought 10 new racks to the Adams Street Corridor in UpTown.
In addition, TMA is offering an opportunity for local artists that will see 3 to 5 new racks installed in various locations on the Museum campus.
Artists selected for this addendum will also receive a $500 stipend and see their design fabricated and installed in various locations on the TMA’s 32 acre campus.
Similar to the Uptown District phase of this initiative, we are looking for designs for bike racks that can accommodate two bicycles, one on each side of the rack (similar to traditional “U” shaped racks) and that will represent Toledo’s unique aesthetic and cultural identity.
Please see the link below for details and further information:
The deadline for Artist Designed Bike Rack Phase II entries is Thursday, November 1. Winning designs will hit the streets in spring, 2013.
Entries may be submitted by any member of the community. See the link above for details on submissions, awards, fabrication, etc.
PDF file with more info, including the form to design and submit an entry.
Artists are asked to submit a maximum of three (3) entries for the Arts Commission and/or three (3) entries for the Toledo Museum of Art.
Please indicate whether the submission is for the Toledo Museum of Art or The Arts Commission Warehouse District project on your design sheet.
Designs will be chosen by a design review board made up of arts advocates, bicycle advocates, and community stakeholders.
No fabrication skills needed – The Arts Commission will be responsible for fabrication and installation of winning entries.
