Pedal Over to Barre

Artist Chris Miller stands beside the art bike rack he created, which is on Main Street in Barre.

 

The first “art bike rack,” supported by the Charles Semprebon Fund, was placed on Main Street in Barre on Friday, July 11th.

A sculpture of two gargoyles carved from granite on either end of a serpentine-shaped bike rack, using their arms to pull the bike rack in a mock tug of war contest, was created by Chris Miller of Calais. This is the first of three art bike racks that will be sited during the next year, for the future enjoyment of Barre residents and visitors.

Volunteer project organizer, Sue Higby remarked, “These art bike racks are tangible ways to promote bike riding, a major interest of Charles Semprebon, and at the same time familiarize people with the skilled artisans in our area.”
