ARTCRANK at the 2016 Winter Cycling Congress

by Charles Youel January 31, 2016

The Winter Cycling Congress is coming to the United States for the first time ever, and Minneapolis — a city that knows a thing or two about cold-weather biking — will play host. The three-day event that runs February 2-4 will bring together a diverse and international group of people with a shared vision of increasing bicycling and walking among people of all ages and abilities through the winter.

Wednesday, February 3: Bike Parade & After-Party
Grab your bike and join the delegates of the Winter Cycling Congress for a 5-mile joyride along the Mississippi. The ride will assemble in the driveway in front of The Commons Hotel at 4:00 p.m., depart at 4:30 p.m., and then end at Weisman Art Museum for the after-party, which officially opens to the public at 6:00 p.m.



ARTCRANK will feature a selection of handmade, limited-edition prints celebrating year-around cycling. Photographers Hansi Johnson and Ellie Kingsbury will also have work on display. The Weisman Museum will be open during the after-party until 8:00 p.m., including the new exhibit "Clouds, Temporarily Visible," as well as "Still...Life" and "Black & White."

Every Ride Has An End

Arriving at the decision to sunset ARTCRANK, at least from a business standpoint, was a lot less surprising than the turnout for our first show, at least to me. Of course, I also had 16 years to think about that one. Not in the sense of being fixated on how all of it would end, but in the sense of thinking about how I would define success where ARTCRANK was concerned.

We’ve made changes to the way we operate to accommodate the series of new realities we’ve found ourselves in since March. We’ve also had a chance to bear down and focus on some ideas that we’ve had in the works for a long time and just hadn’t had the time to pull off. Our new site is one of them.
