Bike Night at Mia? We're so there.
ARTCRANK exists at the intersection of bikes and art. Naturally, we’re big fans of Bike Night — Minneapolis Institute of Art's annual salute to the two things we love best. This year, we’re doing our part to make this year’s event a little more biketastic by contributing 15 bike-inspired posters designed by Twin Cities artists to a prize drawing for attendees.

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.
Afghan Cycles follows a new generation of young Afghan women who are pedaling their own revolution, aggressively challenging gender and cultural barriers using the bicycle as a literal and metaphorical vehicle for freedom, empowerment and social change.
