Monday Fix No 8… Artcrank, Poster Party

Friday evening found us event hopping from Cycle Style at Smithfield Market to Artcrank, A Poster Party for Bike People exhibition at the bike friendly store, Look Mum No Hands. After saying hello and catching up with friends Amy, Chris I and found ourselves with glass of wine in one hand discussing the unique and interesting bike impression, poster art! A wonderful selection of artists, exhibited really well on wall and suspended in mid-air along the window side of the store, all at an affordable price ranging between £10 and £20.

Bikes are the world’s most fun and accessible way to get around. Posters are the world’s most fun and accessible art form. ARTCRANK brings them together.

ARTCRANK began in Minneapolis in 2007, and has expanded to DenverSt. LouisPortlandSan Francisco and Des Moines. And is holding its first international show in London.

Every ARTCRANK show features posters created by local artists from the host city. Admission is always free, and posters are priced to let everybody take home at least one.

Here is the one I bought, love it and cant wait to get framed up!….

  1. Hey there — thanks for the great post. I just linked to it from the ARTCRANK Twitter account (@ARTCRANK). One small correction — all of the posters in the London show are priced at £20 or less. And in the good news department, Look Mum No Hands has extended the show for the rest of the week.

    See you in 2011,

    • Thanks Charles, we love our posters and had a great time at the event. Apologies for the error in the post. I have amended it. Hope the show went well for the rest of the week! Do keep us up to date with future events. Amy x
