DC Seeking Artists to Design Bike Racks
The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) in collaboration with District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and Councilmember Tommy Wells' Office (link to CM Wells' blog posting) is seeking artists to create artistic designs to enhance the standard bike racks and create designs for unique bike racks that will be placed in various locations citywide. Artists are encouraged to incorporate their interpretations of the "DC experience" into their artwork. Artists may also wish to consider particular locations for placement of their work and create designs specifically suited for each location.
Artist Honorarium: $1,500
Deadline: Friday, July 11, 2008 at 5:30 pm
