An event to unveil “Exploration,” the fourth in a series of artistic bike racks commissioned by the Golden Triangle BID.  Designed by two National Geographic employees, “Exploration” is a series of circles, each depicting a different image found in nature – water, earth, moon and sun.  “Exploration” calls us all to discover the world around us, including the neighborhoods where we live and work.
