There's a Pop Rack in there somewhere ...
1 / 3
Pop Rack combines fun and function for cyclists and pedestrians alike.
The playful, drawing-like optical game of this custom bicycle rack adds both a visual splash and a needed piece of cycling infrastructure to the existing streetscape. Utilizing a two-dimensional configuration considered most functional and successful by many cycling advocates, Pop Rack provides space to concurrently lock a bicycle to either side of the rack. Diagonal steel bars offer multiple options for attaching either a common ‘U’ lock or longer cable lock, allowing bicycles to be secured easily to the rack in at least two places.
Pop Rack was commissioned and installed by the Modesto Art Museum in 2014 as a public art work in the Modesto Design District.
