City of Port Moody, Request for Qualifications – Artist Designed Bike Rack


Overview: To support cycling throughout the region, the City of Port Moody is calling on artists to submit their qualifications for designing a laser cut panel for a series of new bicycle racks that will be installed throughout the city. The first bicycle rack installation will take place in 2017.

Purpose: The purpose of this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is to solicit qualifications from artists, or artist teams, interested in creating one design pattern.

Design parameters: Up to three artists or artists teams will be chosen, by a jury, to refine and transfer one design to a vector based digital file that will then be used as a pattern for a 16 to 18 inch laser cut disk to be attached to an inverted ā€œuā€ bicycle rack.
