The Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission is seeking artists to create bike racks to be located at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library on the upper level and in front of the Community Room on the lower level.
The goal for the lower level is to have a bike rack that will be artistic and functional and entice children to park their bikes at the rack instead of on the ground in front of the Children’s Library. Artists are encouraged to let their imagination be their guide!
Public art can be a change agent for the community. It creates and establishes neighborhood and community identity and enhances the visual landscape and character of the city. It turns ordinary spaces into community landmarks and promotes community dialogue and, most importantly, it’s accessible to everyone.
Information packets are available at City Hall, 710 E. Mullan Ave., or online at www.cdaid.org/arts. Proposals are due by 5 p.m., Feb. 10. To ensure fairness, no extensions or waivers of deadlines will be granted. Artists with questions are encouraged to contact Sam Taylor, Arts Commission liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
