Alright, so now that summer's official, I think we should just sort of kick it off with some competitons to start with, and then branch off into some crazy, fun times!
So, first up:
The Geneva Cultural Arts Commission in Geneva, Illinois is seeking original unique design conceptsSecondly:
for the initial phase of the Artist/Designer Bike Rack Project called Bike + Rack = Art.
The program is slated to be a recurring annual competition. The size and location of the racks may vary.
You need not be a resident of Geneva to enter.
Artists need no fabrication skills to enter the competition; The Cultural Arts Commission
will be responsible for the fabrication and installation of winning bike rack designs should
the artist not have the facilities to fabricate the design.
There is no cost to submit an entry!
Initial submissions are for concepts only.
Please refer to the Entry Forms / RFP for further info.
