ABOUT ARTCRANK: (from http://artcrank.com/about)
Bikes are the world’s most fun, accessible way to get around. Posters are the world’s most fun, accessible art form. ARTCRANK™ brings them together.
ARTCRANK is a show of bicycle-inspired poster artwork that introduces people to talented local artists and sends them home with affordable, original works of art. Every ARTCRANK show features posters created by local artists from the host city. Admission is always free, and posters are priced to let everybody take home at least one.
ARTCRANK began in Minneapolis in 2007, and has expanded to Denver, St. Louis, Portland, San Francisco, Des Moines and Bend. In September 2010, we held our first international show in London. And in September 2011, we’ll hold our first show at Interbike, the bike industry’s annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
ARTCRANK uses creativity to change how people look at and think about bicycles, and grow the cycling community.
Bikes, Art and Doing Good.
The best part of our jobs is that we get to travel to some of the country’s (and the world’s) great cities and get to know people who are as head-over-heels in love with cycling and creativity as we are. This is a great privilege, and we channel that same energy into supporting people and groups who are out there doing good.
In every host city, we select a Cause Partner: A local, national or international organization that’s using bicycles to make a difference in communities, help people live better lives, or just make the world a better place. In concert with our sponsors, we use ARTCRANK as a means to help raise money and awareness for these organizations.
