Public Art Bike Racks

Since its foundation, the Trust has kept quality aesthetics and design as a guiding principle in the development Pittsburgh's Cultural District. We believe how our environment looks and feels really does contribute greatly to how we look at and shape the world around us. Even a bicycle rack can be transformed into a work of art in a marriage of form and function. With more than 25 artistic bike racks arranged throughout the Cultural District’s 20 city blocks, this series of installations has become a ‘must-do’ walking tour of the downtown core.

The project was produced in collaboration with Bike Pittsburgh, and the Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinator for the City of Pittsburgh. The Cultural District Public Art Bike Racks have been made possible through the generous support of the Colcom Foundation.
