Interview with Mark Barinholtz

Check out this video by Todd C. Wiggins to see an interview with Capitol Hill resident and artist Mark Barinholtz, winner and designer of the bright green Eastern Market artistic bike rack.

The DC Creates Public Art Artistic Bike Rack proposal invited local artists to enhance the city’s standard bike racks and create unique designs that could be placed in locations city-wide. Artists were encouraged to incorporate their interpretation of the “DC experience” into their artwork as well as consider particular locations for the placement of the work. The intent of the project is to encourage more people to use bicycles and increase the number of bike racks throughout the city that are both functional and artistic.
