    Bike racks can also be public art

    There's no reason public art can't also be public utility:

    As long as they don't look TOO much like art, to the point that some overzealous cop gives you a ticket or bike cut-off for locking inappropriately to public sculpture...

    http://www.dero.com/products/bike_bi...bike_rack.html

    Simple, cool, reminds people that bikes belong and when cyclist do it right, we can lock 4 bikes to it.

    We've got that one at one of our neighborhood pools. I've never seen a bike locked to it or anywhere near it. Mostly kids ride to that pool and just lay their bikes down on the ground.

    I'm a big fan of the "Three Rivers Bike Racks" Bike Pgh has installed all of the place in Pittsburgh.

    Ellwood Thompson's organic and natural foods store in Richmond VA is having a design contest, for new bike racks for their stores:

    We'd love to get comments at the above article, with links to interesting stuff on the web about public art bike racks.
