ARTCRANK is a show of bicycle-inspired poster artwork that introduces people to talented local artists and sends them home with affordable, original works of art. Since our 2007 debut in Minneapolis, we’ve held shows in bike-lovin’ cities like Portland, San Francisco, New York, Austin and Los Angeles.
In 2013, we’re gearing up for our fourth show in London. As of now, we’re deep in negotiations with a prospective venue, and won’t be announcing a show date until we have a final agreement.
What is certain is that we’ll be working with Lezyne and Colorplan Papers to celebrate bikes and local artists. We’ll also be supporting Otesha Project UK, a nonprofit organization that uses cycling to empower young people from all backgrounds to take the lead in creating this change for themselves, their community and the wider world.
If you’re new to this whole ARTCRANK thing, spend some time wandering our site to see what we’ve done stateside in Austin, Denver, Minneapolis, Portland, St. Louis, and San Francisco. Or jump over to our Flickr and Vimeo pages for even more ocular enjoyment.
