The Redmond Committee for Art in Public Places (RCAPP) has announced the Homestead Bike Pump Track as the next location for a student art project.

The committee invites youth artists who reside within the Redmond School District boundary to submit concepts for a mural(s) in the Bike Park.

Student submissions will be accepted until September 30.

The winning concept(s) will work with members of RCAPP to bring their design to life.

“We are pleased to focus our next student art project on the Homestead Bike Pump Track,” states RCAPP Chairman Dan Mooney.  “We received an overwhelming response to the mural project recently completed at the Redmond Skate Park and look forward to providing our youth artists with another opportunity to showcase their creative talents.”

RCAPP has collaborated with local students and schools on many public art projects since the committee’s inception in 2006; including the Redmond Skate Park, the tunnel between Sam Johnson Park and American Legion Park, painted electrical boxes throughout Redmond, custom tiles installed at Centennial Park, and the Yew Avenue round-a-bout sculpture. The volunteer committee works to produce at least one student art project annually.
