About the Show
ARTCRANK’s 2018 Minneapolis show will take place on Saturday, October 13 at IDS Center. Staging a show in one of the most iconic buildings in Minneapolis is a far cry from our DIY bike shop roots, but one thing remains the same: Affordable, bike-inspired poster art created by local artists. This year’s edition of ARTCRANK features new bike-inspired posters created by more than 40 artists from around the Twin Cities.
For the fourth consecutive year, ARTCRANK is teaming up with Fulton Brewing to provide adult refreshments and benefit a local nonprofit organization. A portion of proceeds from beer sales will benefit the Minnesota Cycling Federation and its programs that introduce kids to the sport of cycling, let them try out racing for the first time, and learn how to ride like pros.
ARTCRANK is also partnering with IDS Center — which is donating the space for the event — and the mpls downtown council to create a showcase of all the ways that cycling is transforming the downtown neighborhood, from commuting to shopping to sightseeing. Show attendees will be encouraged to take advantage of the revamped, Nicollet to arrive by bike, with free valet bike parking near IDS Center’s Nicollet entrance provided by the Cultural Wellness Center's My Bike Project, another longtime ARTCRANK partner.
We're proud to represent and support the work of these incredibly talented local artists.
