Temporary public art at Citi Bike stations

Street Art

Together with the New York department of transport, Citi Bike is working on a project called “DOT Art” which decorates bike stations, streets, and sidewalks in the city with colorful art, sculptures, and murals.

As a way to celebrate the diversity of New York City — and September being Women’s Bike Month — Citi Bike on Wednesday unveiled a vibrant geometric street mural honoring South African artist Esther Mahlangu.
Created by up-and-coming artist Imani Shanklin-Roberts, who graduated from Pratt University in 2014, the mural is located at the Citi Bike station plaza at Franklin Street and West Broadway in Manhattan.

It is part of an ongoing DOT initiative to collaborate with community-based organizations and artists to present temporary public art in neighborhoods around the City.
