A Poster Show for Bike People


ARTCRANK stages live events featuring bicycle-inspired posters created by local artists. We began in 2007 with a single show at a bike shop in Minneapolis. We expected 50 people to turn up. We got 500. In 2013, more than 6,000 people attended our Minneapolis Opening Night Party. In 2012, more than 30,000 people attended ARTCRANK events in the U.S. and beyond.

This year, we’ll hold U.S. shows in Austin, Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, Seattle, Boston, Denver, New York, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles. In the UK, we’ll stage our fourth show in London, as well as our first event in Manchester. And we’ll hold a new event in partnership with Vélib’, the bike share program in Paris.

We’re taking a bit of a break from expansion right now, but if you’d like to talk to us about hosting or sponsoring an ARTCRANK show, please get in touch.
