Cyclists heading to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in Fort Greene are about to get a much artsier spot to park their bikes: BAM unveiled a new bike lot today featuring a mural by Brooklyn-based artist KAWS and a bike rack designed by the Talking Heads' David Byrne.

Dubbed BAM Bike Park, the new lot is located just across the street from BAM's Peter Jay Sharp building, which already features bike racks designed by Byrne. The new yellow racks are manufactured by Dero Bike Racks, and can be twisted into letters and numbers—this one reads "bold wink," while the older ones spell out "wry romp" and "mo vinyl."

According to BAM, the new lot aims to be both new digs for bikes and a gallery of rotating public art displayed on a 20-foot-wide by 24-foot-high wall.
