Help design bike racks for downtown
July 30, 2013
The city is inviting artists to help design artwork for bicycle racks, which will be installed downtown at a date to be determined. The bicycle racks will be standard inverted “U” racks, and the commissioned artwork will fill the inner space.
The Office of Sustainability is partnering with the Arts Commission for the project. The new bicycle racks are part of the bicycle and pedestrian action plan, which aims to make transportation without a car around Issaquah easier.
Artists will work with the city to design the artwork that will decorate the bike racks. They are not responsible for any of the construction or installation; they will be compensated with a one-time payment of $2,500.
The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Aug. 16. Interested artists should email Amy Dukes, the arts coordinator for the Issaquah Arts Commission, for application details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
