Artist Designed Bike Racks

Last summer, the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy in partnership with the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia launched an open competition inviting artists and designers to create unique and creative bike racks for Philadelphia. Artist-designed Bike Racks features all 9 of the winning bike rack designs. This is the only remaining opportunity to see all the designs in one location. Afterwards, the bike racks will be installed throughout Center City in such locations as the Cira Centre, Sister Cities Park, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, for widespread public use.

Artist Designed Bike Racks
  • Ralph Tullie's "Bike Cloud" bike rack . As the city's bike culture grows, so does the need for bike infrastructure. The Bike Coalition and the city just held a competition to design new bike racks. How do they stack up? Are they an improvement over the standard U rack? Or does Philly just need more racks? I'll do a test locking.. 04/06/2014 ( MICHAEL BRYANT / Staff Photographer )
