CDA Arts Commission Seeks Artists for CDA Public Library Bike Racks

Posted: 1/10/2018 8:59:08 AM

The City of Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission is seeking artists for bike racks to be located in front of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library on the upper level and in front of the Community Room on the lower level. 

The goal of the lower level is to have a bike rack that will be both artistic and functional and that will entice children to park their bikes at the rack instead of on the ground in front of the Children’s Library that is accessible from the lower level.  Artists are encouraged to let their imagination be their guide!

Public art can be a change agent for the community.  It creates and establishes neighborhood and community identity and also enhances the visual landscape and character of the city.  It turns ordinary spaces into community landmarks and promotes community dialogue and, most important, it’s accessible to everyone.

Information packets are available at City Hall, 710 E. Mullan Avenue, or by CLICKING HERE. Artist proposals are due by 5 p.m., Feb. 10, 2018.  To ensure fairness, no extensions or waivers of deadlines will be granted.  Artists with questions are encouraged to contact Sam Taylor, Arts Commission Liaison, at
