UPDATE: We’re excited to announce the roster for our 2013 San Francisco show. The artists and designers listed at right will create original, limited edition bike-inspired poster prints for our event on Friday, December 6 at SOMArts.
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, Boston, Denver, Seattle, New York, Austin, Chicago, London and Paris.
In San Francisco, we’ll be working with our friends from Widmer Brothers Brewing, Neenah Paper, and Clif Bar to support World Bicycle Relief, a nonprofit fit partnership that’s provided more than 100,000 bicycles to people in developing countries, giving them sustainable transportation and improved access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity. You can do your part by buying an ARTCRANK pint glass for $5 — all proceeds go to support World Bicycle Relief.
ARTCRANK is supported by the SOMArts Cultural Center’s Affordable Space Program, which provides subsidized, large-scale affordable space and technical assistance to nonprofits. SOMArts receives support from the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Community Arts and Education Program with funding from Grants for the Arts/The Hotel Tax Fund. The mission of SOMArts is to promote and nurture art on the community level and foster an appreciation of and respect for all cultures.
