ARTCRANK NYC 2013 will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by New York area artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $40 each. Admission is free.
UPDATE: ARTCRANK NYC is returning to the SoHo location of Bicycle Habitat on Thursday, September 26 and Friday, September 27 with an all new show of bike-inspired posters by local artists. But in order to have a poster show, we need poster artists.
CALL FOR ARTISTS
We are now accepting artist submissions for our 2013 show. Please note that we have a strict locals-only policy, and will only consider artists who live and work in the greater New York City area.
To be considered for the show, send three digital samples of previous art and design work (URLs, JPGs, PDFs, etc.) to us via email.
While we definitely look for experience with screen-printing, letterpress and other craft printing techniques, your samples do not need to be posters and/or bike-related — just work that shows your skills and style. Please do not submit proposed/spec poster designs — only artists who are selected for the show will be asked to create new work.
The Call for Entries will close on Saturday, July 20, 2013 — submit your samples today!
We’ll be working with our friends from Widmer Brothers Brewing, Neenah Paper, and Clif Bar to celebrate bikes and local artists, as well as support Streetsblog and Streetfilms as they work to inspire, shape and report on the movement to transform New York and other cities into better places to live, work and play. Stay tuned for more information on all of the above and more.
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!
