INFORMATION ON BIKE PARKING PROJECT
This project, by artist REBECCA WEINSTEIN, addresses the overwhelming need for more bicycle parking, recently made more intense by the removal of parking meter heads throughout Oakland and Berkeley.
are a playful, creative, and functional way to solve this problem, re-use existing meter poles, and coat the city with art. As much as possible, the heads are made from reused materials.
To support this project, you can buy a head, and, if you like, suggest a location for placement.
Several heads are on view at the ART ACTS FOR CHANGE SHOW - info below.
