Call for Artists: RiNo Artist Temporary Bike Rack Project
Deadline for Qualifications: Friday June 2nd, 2017
The RiNo Art District is seeking qualifications from RiNo artists for a temporary bike rack project this summer. The call is open to RiNo artists and is to design and develop functional bicycle racks to be located within the Art District at various locations.
One or more artist/teams will be selected to create artistic temporary bike racks. The total project budget is $18,000. Budget reflects the artist or artists consultant fee, design, project materials, fabrication and delivery to site.
The RiNo Art District’s approach is to be always forward-thinking - to design places for people, bicycles, transport and cars in a balanced way, one that protects our community ecosystem. People, bicycles and transit are the priority. RiNo invests in amenities that support access for all and helps to bring people into and around the neighborhood. In collaboration with the Velorama Festival, Colorado Classic and Home Advisor the district is looking to create temporary bike racks for the upcoming cycling event coming to the RiNo Art District in early August. This event will bring tens of thousands of visitors and millions of television viewers to the district and our goal is to show off the talented artists that have help drive the growth of this community.
The objective of this project is to provide 3-5 temporary bike racks that can be used for the upcoming Velorama Festival at the Colorado Classic. These racks will be used near the heart of the event and need to provide a safe and secure environment for people to lock up their bikes during the event. These racks may be eventually installed permanently in the district. Our goal is to reflect the industrial nature and artistic personality of the RiNo Art District.
