Parkdale BikeRack Sculptures Unveiling!

Some of you may remember the funky Parkdale Bikerack sculptures I took pictures of during the Smells of Toronto Ride last year… well happily, the bikerack sculpture program has been expanded!

Found in the BikingToronto Mail Box this morning:

Along with crocuses, roses and tulips that are emerging in gardens across Toronto, a crop of unique and functional public art is springing up in Parkdale.

Known as bike rack sculptures, these colourful and creative elements of street furniture are sprouting in various locations in Parkdale, taking the form of a tree, butterfly, gargoyle and other inventive shapes and designs. Four racks have already popped up at 1499 Queen St. W. in front of Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre (PARC), a community centre offering support to psychiatric survivors and people who are socially isolated.
Ten additional racks will be installed at the Parkdale Village Business Improvement Area office (PVBIA) on Queen Street West between Dufferin Street and Roncesvalles Avenue.


The Unveiling Info:

When: Monday, April 16, 2007 at 11:00 AM
Where: Parkdale Library (1303 Queen Street West at Cowan Avenue)
