Artist Designed Bike Rack Competition (Philadelphia, PA)

Call for Proposals

The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, in partnership with the City of Philadelphia Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, is seeking design proposals for bike racks to be installed in Center City Philadelphia, and other potential locations in the city.

The deadline for submissions is September 4, 2013.
This competition is open to all artists and design professionals.

Of the 10 largest cities in the United States, Philadelphia has the most bicycle commuters per capita. In order to support the transportation choices of its citizens, the City has developed a Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan, with the goal of installing 1,500 new bike racks per year for five years. The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy is collaborating with the Bicycle Coalition on this artist-designed bike rack competition, with the goal of supporting and encouraging bicycling in Philadelphia by providing a creative solution to the need for bicycle parking: bike racks that also function as additions to the city's collection of outdoor public art.
