Caponi Art Park is seeking proposals for an artist designed bike rack. This piece of functional public art will be installed in the main parking lot of the park. The winning design will integrate the bike rack into the landscape and work with the natural elements of the site.
The Call for Proposals is open to artists of all backgrounds and experience. No more than two proposals may be submitted by each artist/artist group. Each proposal should include an original drawing that takes into account the design parameters for a functional bike rack listed above. The bike rack design, materials to be used, fabrication/production concepts, and all associated costs should be clearly addressed in the artist(s) submission. Submission deadline extended to December 8, 2017.
The selected artist will be awarded a stipend of $1,400 for the materials, construction of artist bike rack, and artist fee.
The artist bike rack will be located in the northeastern corner of Caponi Art Park’s main parking lot. The site is 20’ x 17’ x 17’.
