Artist sought to design on-street bicycle parking
Seattle’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) seeks an artist or artist team to design on-street bicycle parking. Artist-designed bicycle parking is a product of the SDOT Art Plan. Bike racks will fill one or two motor vehicle parking spaces on the street. Each car-sized space will accommodate up to eight bikes.

The selected artist will work with SDOT staff to design, fabricate and install bicycle parking at two to four on-street locations. The new program addresses the expanding need for bicycle parking and is part of the city’s Bicycle Master Plan, which aims to triple the number of people bicycling in Seattle over 10 years.

Eligibility: Professional artists living in Washington state
Budget: $30,000 for design, fabrication and installation
Deadline: 11 p.m., Monday, April 13, 2009, Pacific time
