The bicycle will once again play muse for artists at "ARTCRANK," a gallery show and party celebrating one of the most beloved forms of transportation. The celebration will start early for families with games, obstacle courses, and safety information from 3 to 5 p.m. Afterward, things will really get hopping with food trucks and craft beer from Widmer Brothers Brewing. Guests will also be able to purchase special-edition "ARTCRANK" pint glasses as well as handmade bike-themed posters and prints from 40 artists. Looking to ride to the event? One on One Bike will be offering free valet parking. Much like bike commuters, this show gets around; after the opening celebration, art will be on display at One on One Bike, Amsterdam, and Big Table Studio.
