Midtown Artist Creates Bike Rack Buzz

Gina Rossi is a midtown Sacramento artists who works with metal and glass, especially found objects. She created the first bike rack for the 21 10 Gallery on Del Paso Boulevard. Fast forward to 2015 and Gina’s bike racks are so popular that no self respecting restaurateur will open without an iconic bike rack to help put them on the map. It is the perfect way to celebrate cycling and public art.
