Bike Stands at the ROM


The ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) commissioned a group of artistic bike stands that reflect their collection. The galvanized steel stands by Toronto artists Jack Gibney and Phil Sarazan were installed in 2008 along the stretch of Queen's Park beside the ROM. Each of the 12 stands is a different design - obviously this is an owl!

This is terrific, Redpat. I love it when some artistry is introduced into functional fixtures like bike stands.
