CALL TO ARTISTS: Pedal to the Metal PHX Bike Rack Project
The deadline to submit is Monday, December 18, 2017.
Artlink, in partnership with Downtown Phoenix, Inc. and Phoenix’s Street Transportation Department and Office of Arts and Culture invites artists and designers of all practices to apply for the Pedal to the Metal: Phoenix Bike Rack Project. Artists selected from this call will create new designs for bicycle racks to be installed downtown and throughout Phoenix. These eye-catching designs will be important amenities for Phoenix’s growing bike culture and contribute aesthetic value to our community's streetscapes.
The racks will be produced in editions and installed to add functionality, character, and beauty to streetscapes and commercial cores downtown and citywide. Artists, designers, and other creative individuals or teams – whether or not they specialize in industrial and product design – are encouraged to apply. The new racks created by this pilot program will be installed starting in March, 2018. An exhibition of submissions will take place during Art Detour 30, March 15-20, 2018.
