ARTCRANK INT will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by artists from throughout North America. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $50 each. Please note that Interbike is a cycling industry event and not open to the public.
UPDATE: We just posted smokin’ hot sneak peeks of posters from our 2012 show above. We know that the 20,000+ Interbike attendees will be blown away by this year’s show, and we’ll post photos of the full posters tomorrow.
For 2012, we’ll have not one but two poster displays set up:

All of the limited-edition posters in ARTCRANK Interbike will sell for $50, and $5 from every poster purchased will be donated to World Bicycle Relief, a nonprofit partnership involving some of the biggest names in the bike industry. World Bicycle Relief has provided more than 100,000 bicycles to people in developing countries, giving them sustainable transportation and improved access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity. We’ll even have protective poster tubes to make sure everyone can get their new bike art home safe and sound.
