Five were chosen to represent the five distinct districts of downtown (I think I can name three of em, but don't make me put that in writing).
The city owes a special thanks to Dr. Richard D. Adelman, who launched the project after seeing similar artistic racks in Louisville, KY. He helped secure funding for the Raleigh racks.
Here are pix of the winning entries. Congrats to all of the artists / designers / architects / visionaries who participated. Look for their functional sculptures very soon in the uptown area.
