LiveDAYBREAK Unleashes Mischievous Bike Monsters on Daybreak!

SOUTH JORDAN, UTAH (MAY 3, 2018) -
The LiveDAYBREAK Community Arts Advisory Committee (CAAC) is happy to announce the installment of five larger than life "bike monster" sculptures in the Daybreak Community.

 

In conjunction with Fred Conlon of Sugar Post Metals, the CAAC has worked diligently to design and place the five sculptures in four locations around Oquirrh Lake and one location in Founders Park.

"It really lends itself (Daybreak) to public art that would incorporate the idea that Daybreak has of being a walkable, bikeable, fitness-based community", said Conlon.
After deciding on the inspiration of the sculptures, the CAAC and LiveDAYBREAK worked with community members to collect donated bikes that would be incorporated into the design of each "bike monster" sculpture.

"Most of my sculptures are made from recycled material, and since we were doing bikes we thought it would be really cool to incorporate old bike frames, wheels, tires, and even some pedals into these sculptures", said Conlon. "The best part is all the recycled bike parts came from the Daybreak community."

The LiveDAYBREAK CAAC is a committee of Daybreak residents who work to advocate for public art throughout the Daybreak community. This may include a variety of temporary, semi-temporary, or long-term art installations in Daybreak.

In order to fund various projects through the community, the CAAC is funded by a commercial community enhancement fee that is collected by LiveDAYBREAK.
