Public Works of Art Partner Businesses with Artists
The Citrus Cultural Alliance presented at the Economic Development Authority's
Fire-Up Citrus Event, October 2, 2014. THe CCA proposed a series of creative bicycle racks to be placed throughout Citrus County. In early 2016 we put out a Call to Artists asking for drawings of the "Lady Bicyclist". When a business purchases a rack they choose an artist based on these drawings who then paints the "Lady Bicyclist" portion of the rack. Then the rack is installed at the business! In early 2017 it was announced that Withlacoochee Technical College would be partnering with the CCA to produce the racks in their welding department! We couldn't be happier with this partnership, as it perfectly brings together businesses, students, educational institutions and local artists to create on of a kind public works of art to be used by the community.
The goals of this project are to:
*Promote the Arts in Citrus County
*Bring together businesses and artists through sponsorships
*Promoting a cohesive feeling about our community through the artwork
*Benefit residents and visitors with a means to secure their bicycles while utilizing restaurants, businesses, public services and events around Citrus County’s plentiful trails and parks, roadways and waterways.
