Jennifer Barker, owner of Bambu Salon, led the effort with support from INDYCOG, the Office of Sustainability, and artist, Scott Sebree to construct and install a custom bike corral in front of Bambu Salon at 916 E. Westfield Boulevard in Broad Ripple. The comb design concept was developed by the
staff at Bambu Salon and Barker commissioned the expertise of steel artist, Scott Sebree from the Indianapolis Art Center.
The construction of the bikecorral took place off-site at Edwards Electrical and has been in production
for several months. Once installed, the comb bike corral will hold 9 bicycles. The $4,200 needed to fund the project has been raised through grassroots efforts including donations from the salon's clients and nearby
business owners and in-kind botanical scalp treatments performed by the salon's staff (a portion of the product for the scalp treatments was donated by Aveda). Donations are still being accepted to pay for the cost of the bike corral and its installation. A partnership with INDYCOG allows for all
donations to be tax-deductible. Visit www.theINDYCOG.com to make a tax-deductible donation to the comb bike corral project in Broad Ripple. Bambu only needs to raise $400 to ensure the project is fully-funded!
"We are very excited about the installation of this functional art piece. We are particularly thankful to Jennifer Barker, who has spear-headed this project. Jennifer and her staff dedicated time and effort above and beyond
what it takes to run an exemplary business and took steps to improve the community's aesthetics and quality of life. They were able to meld public art and bike culture in a unique way and the Broad Ripple community will benefit from their vision and commitment for years to come. We are very
fortunate to have Bambu, Jennifer and staff as part of our business community."
