Since 2009, Metro Arts has commissioned local and regional artists to design bicycle racks. The racks promote our city’s green and healthy living initiatives while providing a fun opportunity to experience art around your neighborhood.
Selected artists worked closely with Metro Arts’ fabricator and staff to realize their design. Currently, there are twenty-one artist-designed bike racks in downtown Nashville and adjacent neighborhoods. The first round of seven bike racks was installed in 2010, a second round of ten bike racks was installed 2013-2014, and the final round of four bike racks was installed in 2015.
