AFH unveils new bike racks at City Hall

The City of Boston approached Artists For Humanity to be a part of the Boston Bikes initiative:

Boston Bikes is part of Mayor Menino's vision for a vibrant and healthy city that benefits all its citizens. It seeks to make Boston a world-class bicycling city by creating safe and inviting conditions for all residents and visitors. Bike Boston focuses on improvements in all five universal bike planning areas: Engineering, Enforcement, Education, Encouragement, and Evaluation.

AFH Sculpture studio was commissioned to design and create four striking artistic bike racks that will be permanently installed across the city. This project was sponsored by TD Bank. In conjunction with Bike Week, AFH joined the mayor and the City of Boston yesterday for the unveiling in City Hall:

Both TD Bank and Mayor Menino have expressed interest about expanding the project to promote biking in all neighborhoods. Look out for more AFH-created bike racks all across the city!
