The Rack*It Bike Tour

On May 9th the Fine Arts Committee’s Rack*It Public Art Project culminated the year-long program with a bike tour of two newly installed artistic bike racks designed by 4th grader, Elle Linetsky and 5th grader, Nika Chuzhoy.

2015-05-09 08.30.18Despite cold and wet skies, we had over 60 community members gather for the unveilings of the “bird” bike rack at the Village Hall and bike the 3-mile safe-to-school route to the “Wilmette people” bike rack at the Community Recreation Center.
