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:
