A Poster Show for Bike People

ARTCRANK SEA 2014 featured hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Seattle area artists. The show is now closed. Thanks to our artists and to everyone who came out to enjoy the show.

UPDATE: ARTCRANK Seattle 2014 is in the books. Our Friday, June 20 at Fred Wildlife Refuge was an amazing evening of bike-inspired art, with stellar posters created by local artists enjoyed by a packed house of fans.

Special thanks to our friends who teamed up with us to make the show possible:

Oskar Blues provided beer and pint glasses to help us raise more than $2,000 to benefit FCOCA — Fred Coalition of Collaborative Artists, a non-profit arts and cultural organization whose mission is to support and foster multi media collaborative art performances and installations in the Seattle Arts Community.

Seattle’s Bike Works provided valet bike parking for those who arrived on two wheels. Since 1996, this nonprofit advocacy group has worked to educate and empower youth, and make bicycling accessible and affordable to the Seattle community.

Timbuk2 is giving a Seattle artist a chance to have their poster design turned into a limited edition messenger bag. Follow the hashtag #timbuk2artcrank on Instagram to see all of the votes.


Shinola introduced its handcrafted bikes, watches and accessories to an appreciative crowd, providing ample evidence that “American made” is alive and well all over the country.



Neenah Paper‘s Photo Wall made for a night of inspired selfies for show-goers and ARTCRANK volunteers alike.



And there was plenty of love for “Future Perfect,” the poster commissioned by Clif Bar and ARTCRANK to benefit PeopleForBikes, the movement to unite millions of Americans in support of better bike riding experiences for everyone.
