UPDATE: After a mind-blowing opening night bash at Shelter Studios and an extended run at One On One Bicycle Studio and Handsome Cycles in the Minneapolis North Loop neighborhood, ARTCRANK Minneapolis 2014 is now closed.
A huge thank-you to everyone who came out for our May 31 opening, especially our army of red-shirted volunteers who sold posters, served beer by Deschutes Brewery to raise $2,000 for World Bicycle Relief.
There was plenty of love for “Future Perfect,” the poster commissioned by Clif Bar and ARTCRANK to benefit PeopleForBikes, the movement to unite millions of Americans in support of better bike riding experiences for everyone.
Shinola introduced its handcrafted bikes, watches and accessories to an appreciative crowd, providing ample evidence that “American made” is alive and well all over the country.
Thanks also to Bryant Lake Bowl and their amazing bartenders for keeping the suds flowing throughout the event, and to Chow Girls for making the food trucks and outdoor beer garden into the perfect hangout.
Just a reminder: Mitrebox Framing will offer exclusive discounts on standard and custom framing packages for ARTCRANK MSP posters. So get that new work of art up on your wall today!
