Public Art Bike Racks
For over 30 years, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has kept quality aesthetics and design as a guiding principle in the development Pittsburgh's Cultural District. We believe how our environment looks and feels really does contribute greatly to how we look at and shape the world around us. Even a bicycle rack can be transformed into a work of art in a marriage of form and function.
The Trust is pleased to announce the installation of five artist designed bike racks marking the completion of the first phase of this new public art initiative. The five bike racks where designed by artists Carin Mincemoyer (located across the street from the Benedum Center), Colin Carrier (located outside of SPACE Gallery on Liberty Avenue), Toby Fraley (located in front of Nine On Nine restaurant on Penn Avenue), Will Schlough (located at the Westin Convention Center on Penn Avenue), and Connor McNabb (located near the parking garage on Liberty and 9th).
CALL FOR ARTISTS: The next installation of bike racks is expected by late 2015 along Penn Avenue from 11th Street to Stanwix Street. Local artists interested in submitting a design can visit our press room for details.
The project was produced in collaboration with Bike Pittsburgh, and Stephen Patchan, Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinator for the City of Pittsburgh. The Cultural District Public Art Bike Racks have been made possible through the generous support of the Colcom Foundation.
