Spokes Anchor
Located at the Cookeville entrance to the Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail

"Spokes" was installed in 2018 as a collaborative effort between Art Round Tennessee, local sculptor Brad Sells, the City of Cookeville, Stone Steel, and other members of the community. Spurred by Brad's vision of Spokes in 2016, Art Round Tennessee chose to embark on its first permanent and public art installation. Over the course of two years, Spokes was funded and planned by Art Round Tennessee in accordance with the city, while being created in Brad Sells' studio and then at Stone Steel by Brad and other local artists and artisans including Abraham Pardee, David Fricke and Anthony Ford. The sculpture — a 36-foot-wide, 14-foot-tall arch of bicycles — spans the bike path entrance of Putnam County's Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail. The location is accessible and easily visible in Cookeville's historic downtown district, the West Side. Most of the bicycles used in Spokes were donated by local residents.
