Bicycle Art Project:
JOHNSON CITY, TN.

ART•LANDIA, Inc.

Artlandia, Inc is dedicated to creating art, culture and community-driven events, projects and programs
with accessibility and inclusiveness for all people.

They are interested in a work of art that is inspired by cycling, but does not have to be a literal interpretation
of a bicycle. Why bicycle-inspired art? Biking promotes an active, healthy lifestyle, and all of us have a
shared and common story through biking regardless of cultural, racial, gender, economic and
generational backgrounds.

The Tree Streets is one of the largest biking communities in Johnson City where riding is done throughout
the year. A 10-mile rails-to-trail project called the “Tweetsie Trail” was recently constructed by the city, and
an additional 25-mile loop trail is planned (State of Franklin Trail), of which approximately 50% will be
constructed in less than two years. These projects provide bicycling access directly from the Tree Street
neighborhood to all parts of the city and neighboring communities as well. As a result, this neighborhood
has seen an exponential growth in biking traffic making the neighborhood, adjoining university (East Tennessee State University), and the central business district a more urbanized, livable and sustainable community.

Full call here.
