The Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District Project, working with the City of Crisfield through a grant received from the Maryland State Arts Council, is soliciting designs for art bike racks to be placed in various locations in the City of Crisfield, Maryland. This competition for artistic bike rack design will award $500 to each of the top three applicants as determined by the Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District Project board. At least one awardee will be selected from Somerset County. All applicants must by Maryland residents. 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional drawings will be accepted and may indicate a design to be fabricated or modifications to a pre-existing bike rack.
Design proposals will be accepted from January 2020 to April 2, 2020. Selection of award winners will take place by April 15, 2020. This planning grant is designed to lead to an application for an implementation grant in May of 2020. Applicants do not need to have experience with three-dimensional design but should be ready to work with a fabricator to modify their design if needed upon selection.
