Bicycles on Campus
Call for Student Proposals
The Boise State Department of Public Safety is calling for design entries for its program, Creative Routes, that seeks to combine sustainable transportation and student art. The final project will see the installation of 2, student-designed transportation symbols in the high-traffic areas of the Friendship Bridge and the Bleymaier Football Center (as seen in the photographs below). Symbols will be displayed on this road for up to 10 years. Final stencils will each be a 48” x 132” (4’x11’) rectangle. Each will be printed in thermoplastic by DecoMark and installed by the Department of Public Safety in cooperation with the artist. Entries may be submitted by all current students using their Boise State email address.
Redesign the standard bike person direction symbol. Final work must clearly show the intent of the traffic symbol, which is that cyclists and motorists have equal rights on the roadway. The final design may add, amend, exaggerate, whimsify the original. The final design must be the original design of the artist.
