A Poster Show for Bike People

Saturday, October 4 | 4:00pm – 10:00pm | Velo Cult | 1969 NE 42nd Ave. | Portland | FREE

ARTCRANK PDX 2014 will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Portland area artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $50 each. Admission is free. 

UPDATE: The Call For Artists for ARTCRANK Portland 2014 is now closed. Thanks to all of the artists and designers who submitted samples of work for consideration. We’re humbled and honored by the number of submissions and the quality of work. The artist roster for the show will be announced here on Friday, August 22.

We’re thrilled to be return to Portland for our sixth show. After five years in the Pearl District downtown, we’re moving across the river to hold the show at Velo Cult, a bike shop-coffee shop-bar on Portland’s east side. Here’s a taste of what we have in store for you on Saturday, October 4:

You can help an ARTCRANK Portland artist get their poster printed on a limited edition Timbuk2 messenger bag. Just Instagram your favorites at the show, and tag them #timbuk2artcrank to cast your vote.



Shinola will be on hand to show off its American made, handcrafted bikes, watches and accessories, which are works of art in their own right.



Strike a pose solo or with friends at Neenah Paper‘s Selfie Station — our event staff will be there to take group photos and make sure everyone gets into the picture.


And our friends at Clif Bar will have tasty snacks to keep you going through the whole show. Clif has also commissioned a special, limited-edition poster print to benefit advocacy partner People For Bikes. Great art for a good cause.
