ARTCRANK

ARTCRANK

ARTCRANK began in Minneapolis in 2007 but has since expanded to other cities across the nation. It is a show of bicycle-inspired poster artwork that introduces people to talented local artists they’ve never heard of before 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 runs from yesterday through about mid-May. [DETAILS.]

Here’s a video of scenes from last year’s ARTCRANK. Found at Vimeo from red23films.

This is a preview of some of the posters that will be available at this year’s ARTCRANK:

Minnesota Best Place When Climate Change Wreaks Havoc Upon Us All

On Wednesday, I noted Minnesota’s not-so-encouraging demographic destiny but today I bring you good news: When climate change slowly does us all in, we Minnesotans will be sitting on the real estate least susceptible to its ravages. Of course, we’ll probably have to raise an army to defend ourselves against everyone else who wants to move in. But hey, we’ve got time.

This map shows local vulnerability of human populations to climate change based on ecological and demographic models is depicted by regions in red which are expected to be most negatively affected by climate change. White regions correspond to human density values of zero in the global population database. Read all about it at Futurity.
