You’re Invited! We hope that you will be able to attend the Unveiling Ceremony of Creative Bike Rack winners, along with the Metal Arch spanning Historic 2nd Street, on Friday, May 17th at 5pm on Main Street. See complete details below.
Thanks to the creative designs of several local and regional artists and metal workers, Platteville’s Main Street will soon be home to three unique bike racks. The creative designs were submitted in response to a competition, which was organized and managed by the Platteville Main Street Sustainability Committee and generously funded by a grant from the Platteville Community Fund. This is the result of the Platteville Main Street Sustainability Committee’s Creative Bike Rack Design Competition, in which community members, artists and metal workers were invited to submit design proposals for functional public art bike racks to enhance the Main Street district.
Creative Bike Rack and 2nd Street Arch Unveiling Ceremony: Friday, May 17th
5:00 – 6:00 pm we meet in front of Driftless Market (95 West Main Street) and will walk down Main Street spending approx. 10 minutes at each rack and the 2nd Street Arch to recognize the artists, hand out award checks, and photograph the artist with their rack. **Be prepared to make a brief statement about the inspiration for your design.
6:00 – 6:30 pm interested riders will meet in front of Momentum Bikes to set off on a 30 minute community / family ride. (this will be the location of the last rack to be recognized).6:45 @ City Park – Join us for a celebration with food and music in the Platteville City Park – just off of Main Street near the Driftless Market where we started.
