Ride on down to the Green Building at 732 East Market Street tomorrow night for the First Friday Trolley Hop where Nulu legend Gill Holland and artist Jacob Heustis will be unveiling Louisville’s latest bike rack sculpture. Holland came up with the idea for the bourbon-themed totem called “As the Old Crow Flies” which points to each of the six distilleries on the Bourbon Trail: Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Marker’s Mark, Wild Turkey, and Woodford Reserve.

Heustis designed and built the piece from reclaimed wood and steel sourced from each of the distilleries depicted. From the press release:

The final design replicates a tall country sign-post, with wooden arrows pointing in the actual direction of the distilleries. Heustis sourced barrels from the respective distilleries to use in the sculpture. He burned the emblems of the distilleries into the barrels himself, as most barrels do not come with emblems on them.

Hopefully this new piece of Nulu will be just as much bike rack as it is sculpture, but there’s only one way to find out: ride down, lock up, and send reports and photos back to tips@brokensidewalk.com and we’ll post your results.
