I was requested to send a proposal to the Lexington Council for the Arts in September for a project to enhance the well-used bike path that connects surrounding towns with Cambridge MA. Old doors were provided and then I started making sketches and then a rough mock-up of my design. I used one of my recent Kitsune pieces as an inspiration and more or less a template.My goal was to provide lots of color with a somewhat whimsical composition the would be able to seen going at a runners’ or cyclists’ pace. I also wanted it to be complex enough to warrant stopping to take a longer look.
Nearby Concord has several doors along a new section of interconnecting bike paths. Lexington and Arlington are considering more come spring 2021.
The doors are installed along the Minuteman Bikeway in Lexington Center, between the Visitor Center and Hancock Street.
