A Poster Show for Bike People

Friday, September 12 | 5:00pm – 10:00pm | SOMArts | 934 Brannan St. | San Francisco | Free Admission

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: We’re proud and thrilled to announce the artist roster for ARTCRANK San Francisco 2014. The artists and designers listed at right will create handmade, bike-inspired posters for this year’s show, scheduled for Friday, September 12 at SOMArts.

Each poster will be a limited-edition print, with 30 copies available for purchase for $50 each. This will be our sixth show in San Francisco, and we’re pulling out all the stops  with an amazing group of sponsors to make this show some special from start to finish:

We’re teaming up with New Belgium Brewing to offer show-goers a selection of craft brews, with proceeds benefitting San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and its work to transform San Francisco streets and neighborhoods into more livable and safe places by promoting the bicycle for everyday transportation.


You can help an ARTCRANK SFO 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.   TB2_Messenger

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. ShinolaGrid_650

Strike a pose solo or with friends at Neenah Paper‘s Photo Spot — our event staff will be there to take group photos and make sure everyone gets into the picture. Group_NeenahWallMSP_640

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.
