The Passenger

The Passenger

Sculptural Bike Rack by Ian Bode, 2011

Located at the farmers’ market behind the Capitol Market, 800 Smith Street

Local artist Ian Bode’s creative bike rack resulted from a call for proposals organized by FestivALL Charleston, the city’s annual art festival. The artist’s two-dimensional design of ‘the Passenger’, a hallmark of his work, was translated into a 3D bike rack by Structural Systems, and blurs the line between functional street furniture and sculpture.
