ARTCRANK CHI 2014 will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Chicago area artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $50 each. Admission is free.
UPDATE: We’re proud and thrilled to announce the artist roster for ARTCRANK Chicago 2014. The artists and designers listed at right will create handmade, bike-inspired posters for this year’s show, scheduled for Saturday, July 19 at Expo 72. Each poster will be a limited-edition print, with copies available for purchase for $50 each.
We’re working with an awesome team of local and national sponsors to help make this year’s Chicago show into an event for the ages. Here’s a taste of what we’ve got in store:
Shinola will be on hand to show off its American made, handcrafted bikes, watches and accessories, which are works of art in their own right. We’re thrilled to welcome Shinola bike designer Sky Yaeger and Richard Schwinn of Waterford Precision Cycles, the Wisconsin company that manufactures frames and forks for Shinola, as our special guests.
Thanks to Upland Brewing Co. and Lakeshore Beverage, we’ll be offering a selection of craft beer in ARTCRANK pint glasses, with a suggested donation of $5.00. Proceeds go to support World Bicycle Relief and its work to provide specially designed, locally assembled bicycles to entrepreneurs, healthcare workers and students across rural Africa through sustainable work-to-own and study-to-own programs.
You can help an ARTCRANK CHI artist get their poster printed on a limited edition Timbuk2 messenger bag. Just Instagram your favorites at the show, and tag them #timbuk2artcrank to cast your vote.
Strike a pose solo or with friends at Neenah Paper’s Selfie Station — our event staff will be there to take group photos and make sure everyone gets into the picture.
And our friends at Clif Bar will have tasty snacks to keep you going through the whole show. Clif has also commissioned a special, limited-edition poster print to benefit advocacy partner People For Bikes. Great art for a good cause.
