We’ve covered ARTCRANK for several years now, and it’s pretty wild to see how far the “Poster party for bike people” from our home town has come.
Born in Minneapolis in 2007, ARTCRANK has stayed true to its formula of bikes+affordable local art+beer to go from a small-scale art event to an international poster show.
With shows all over the country and across the pond in London, Manchester and Paris, ARTCRANK’s flagship event remains the annual opening night party in bike-crazy Minneapolis. Last year, over 4,000 were in attendance for opening night, and this year’s MSP opening on Saturday night has the makings of the biggest blowout yet.
Here’s a sneak peek at five of the 45 poster designs that will be on display and for sale on Saturday night.
