Report/photos: Public Art Ride

Posted by on June 18th, 2009 at 10:39 am

About 25 riders converged downtown over the lunch hour yesterday for a tour around some public works of art, led by Ben Foote of ON Gallery.

Many of the pieces were funded by the the state’s 1% for Art rule, which requires publicly funded projects to spend 1% of their budget on public art. This includes much of the new construction in the Pearl, as well as transit spending.

See below for a quick slideshow; see my Flickr set for the photo captions that describe some of the art works.
