ARTCRANK, the annual pop-up exhibit that melds a passion for all things two-wheeled and artsy, rolled into Minneapolis again this year. The opening night at Fulton Brewery brought bike enthusiasts, artists, and beer-lovers together to celebrate the creative side of cycling.
We were there to catch all the action from this year's poster party for bike people.
ARTCRANK celebrated its ninth show in Minneapolis, where the event was founded, with handmade, bike-themed prints from local artists. Plenty of familiar faces (like the Jolly Green Giant and Paul Bunyan) popped up throughout the artwork, along with plenty of Minnesota motifs.
"The connection between bicycles and art really comes down to freedom of expression," says ARTCRANK's founder and creative director Charles Youel. "Bikes are the ultimate form of physical expression and creativity... and posters are the ultimate and most accessible form of creative expression."
