Request for Proposals – City of Oxford Public Arts Commission of Oxford (PACO)


The Public Arts Commission of Oxford invites artists, designers, and the general public to participate in an open call for designs for a bike rack to be installed at the Police Station (101 E High St, Oxford, OH 45056) on the west side of the building. Please see exhibits A-B below.

Bike racks must be able to support two bicycles and have at least two points of contact with each bicycle.
