Hot Attraction: Public Art on Bank Street

Keep an eye out for the innovative Public Art Bicycle Racks when walking along Bank Street. These bold, sometimes playful, and always unexpected designs were created by local artists, and chosen from more than 160 submissions. With some 30 eye-catching designs and 90 racks, these stainless steel panels allow Ottawa’s cyclists to lock onto something beautiful. The functional public art project, launched in 2008, has designs ranging from local scenery and animals to more abstract constructions.
