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.
