10/1: The Bike Rack at Cleveland Public Art

Posted By on Thu, Oct 1, 2009 at 2:11 PM

The city of Cleveland is in the process of creating a bike station for bicycle commuters — a facility that includes bike storage, lockers for clothes and showers for sweaty bikers. It will be “tucked away in an unsuspecting location on the ground floor of the Gateway parking garage,” says Cleveland Public Art executive director Greg Peckham. The city is working with the arts group to create a sculpture that will attract attention and make it a destination for commuting cyclists. Cleveland Colectivo sponsored a design contest — which drew submissions from a 9-year-old kid to a professional architectural firm — with Scott Stibich and Mark A. Reigelman II’s piece coming out on top. If Reigelman’s name sounds familiar, that’s because the recent Cleveland Institute of Art grad has created some highly visible projects lately, including concrete planters for the Euclid Corridor and a gigantic installation for the Cleveland Museum of Art’s East Wing reopening celebration. You can take a look at all the ideas and the winning installation at The Bike Rack show, a one-night exhibit and reception that runs from 5:30-9 p.m. at Cleveland Public Art (1951 W. 26th St. #101, 216.621.5330). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
