Ten years ago, Artcrank combined bikes, beers, and art into one awesome party. This year, 50 prints will honor the art of biking. All of the contributing artists are local—or were at one point during the series—and include iconic artists like Adam Turman, Jennifer Davis, and Anne Ulku. Saturday night’s show will feature a retrospective of past works, including pieces from that first year. “These are the people who believed in me and the show when I didn’t know exactly what I’d started or where to take it,” says event organizer Charles Youel. “People who helped turn a crazy idea into an even crazier adventure that somehow grew to resemble a business.” At the event, posters will be for sale for $40. There will be beer from Fulton, and food from the likes of Hot Indian, MidNord Empanadas, Kramarczuk’s, Red River Kitchen, and MN Nice Cream. Biking to the party is encouraged; a free bike valet awaits you upon arrival.
