We noticed two new works of art disguised as bike racks downtown today that are part of the ongoing bike rack program in Louisville.

We’re not sure how long they have been in place, but here are the photos. Apparently, another rack was installed at the Fleur-de-Lis on Main building back in February (C-J) that we completely missed. These bike-rack-sculptures are located near the intersection of Fourth and Main Streets. Anyone seen any other new bike racks around town?
