ARTCRANK MCR will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Manchester, UK artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for £30 each. Admission is free.
UPDATE: We’re thrilled to announce the artist roster for our first show in Manchester. The artists at right are already hard at work creating original, bike-inspired posters, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
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, Los Angeles and London.
This year we’re coming to Manchester and—as they say in the UK—we’re completely chuffed to bits to be bringing the ARTCRANK poster party to the home of British Cycling and creative hub of Northern England.
The show will open on Friday, July 12 at 2022NQ in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We’ll be working with our friends from Retrofuzz, Lezyne and Colorplan Papers to celebrate bikes and local artists. We’ll also be supporting Simply Cycling, a nonprofit organization that works to make cycling more accessible to people with disabilities.
Please check back for updates, and follow ARTCRANK on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest news. And if you’d like to see photos and videos from previous events, connect with us on Flickr and Vimeo as well. See you soon!
