ARTCRANK SFO 2014 will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Bay Area artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $50 each. Admission is free.
UPDATE: ARTCRANK is returning to San Francisco for our sixth show. We’re still in the process of selecting a venue and picking a date. But a poster show needs poster artists, so we’re starting there.
CALL FOR ARTISTS We are now accepting artist submissions for our 2014 show. Please note that we have a strict locals-only policy, and will only consider artists who live and work in the Bay 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, August 30 — submit your samples today!
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!
