Bicycle Rack Art Contest back  
Date of Record: April 22, 2010

New this Spring you will see eight artistic bicycle racks being placed around the Village of Algonquin. The ECO Committee and the Public Arts Commission collaborated on a bicycle rack art contest. The call for artists was announced in December 2009. In February, the Village had received 20 submittals (15 signature racks and 5 standard racks). The quality and creativity of the designs was very impressive. The selected designs consisted of 3 signature racks and 3 standard rack designs. The artists have fabricated their winning designs and they have been installed. We encourage you to bike Algonquin and see the new functional, artistic bike racks!
