Bike-inspired poster show ARTCRANK returns to Seattle Friday

PrintARTCRANK returns to Seattle Friday to showcase Seattle artists making bike-inspired posters available for sale in limited numbers. So if you know of a wall somewhere that could use a splash of bikey art, this is your chance to get some.

Or, of course, you can just swing by Fred Wildlife Refuge on Capitol Hill, drink some beer and check the art out. Details from ARTCRANK:

Friday, June 20 | 5:00pm – 10:00pm | Fred Wildlife Refuge | 128 Belmont Ave. E | Seattle

ARTCRANK SEA 2014 will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Seattle area artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $50 each. Admission is free.

Each poster will be a limited-edition print, with 30 copies available for purchase for $50 each. Posters frequently sell out fast, so don’t miss your chance to take home an original work of bike-inspired art. We’re working with an amazing group of sponsors to make an event like nothing the Emerald City has ever seen.

Seattle’s Bike Works will be on hand to provide valet bike parking for those who arrive on two wheels. Since 1996, this nonprofit advocacy group has worked to educate and empower youth, and make bicycling accessible and affordable to the Seattle community.

We’ll be pouring a pair of craft beers by Oskar Blues in genuine pint glasses for just $5.00 per glass. Proceeds will benefit FCOCA — Fred Coalition of Collaborative Artists, a non-profit arts and cultural organization whose mission is to support and foster multi media collaborative art performances and installations in the Seattle Arts Community.

Here’s a quick video showcasing some of the past posters:

    My dad was an artist. He always said it was 10% skill at art and 90% skill at business. He had a bachelors degree from the Art Institute of Chicago. He used it to design Kraft Cheese wrappers and Post Cereal boxes to say nothing of Pabst Beer cans. He was finally free to paint when he retired.
