A Poster Show for Bike People

ARTCRANK 2012 | Time Lapse from ARTCRANK on Vimeo.

ARTCRANK LAX will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Los Angeles artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $40 each.

UPDATE: Los Angeles, the wait is over. ARTCRANK is taking the City of Angels by storm on Saturday, December 8. And we’re doing it at the newly-minted Best Bike Shop in L.A. — Orange 20 Bikes. We’ll be packing the house with bike-inspired poster created by local artists and more fun than would be allowable by law anywhere else in the world.

First things first: We’re on the prowl for a crack team of poster artists to sling bicycle-inspired ink. If you’re a bike-lovin’ artist or designer who works in screen printing, letterpress, stencils or other handmade techniques, we want to hear from you.

All ARTCRANK show feature posters created by artists and designers who live and work in the city that hosts the show. Our final roster will feature artists from the Los Angeles area, each of whom will produce a limited edition bike-inspired poster that we’ll display and sell at our event.

To be considered for the show, send three digital samples of previous work (URLs, JPGs, PDFs, etc.) to us via email. Please DO NOT send preliminary poster concepts or designs. We’ll provide more details to all artists who submit work samples.

The Call for Entries will close on Saturday, October 20, 2012.

Other things to look forward to: Craft beer by Widmer Brothers Brewing in ARTCRANK pint glasses. Bonus bike parking and bite-sized snacks from Clif Bar. And a stunning paper bike sculpture created by L.A.’s own Nona Varnado out of the best paper in the world — Neenah Paper.

If you’re new to this whole ARTCRANK thing, spend some time wandering our site to see what we’ve done in Austin, Denver, London, Minneapolis, Portland, St. Louis, and San Francisco. Or jump over to our Flickr and Vimeo pages for even more ocular enjoyment.
