Arttake: Arty Bike Racks, Part 3

Sacramento is full of clever bike racks, so today’s arttake is a follow-up to my first two posts on arty bike racks from Feb 2011 and July 2011. The red rack pictured above is the very bike-like bike rack that sits in front of INK Eats & Drinks at 27th & N.

The ice cream cone and sundae shaped sculpted bike racks at Vic’s Ice Cream were well used on this sunny day.

This rack in front of Paragary’s at 27th & N is called, The Martini Glass, and is also by Rossi. This is part of a series of racks she will be creating for installation throughout midtown. Many unexpected and fun details on this one.

This industrial rack on 23rd Street between I & J looks like a sister to another rack at 25 & I that I posted on last July.
