ARTCRANK has been hosting bike-inspired art shows in cities around the world since 2007. This weekend ARTCRANK will be hitting Seattle for its first show in the city, at the Piranha Shop on Saturday, June 29. ARTCRANK gives communities a chance to enjoy local art and support bicycle advocacy organizations at the same time.

ARTCRANK SEA will feature handmade, bike-inspired posters created by more than two dozen Seattle area artists. Among the creative talent is Andrew Saeger, whose illustrations have been featured on posters for Of Monsters and Men, Wilco and other bands, and Sasha Barr (Amigos Skateboarding).

Cold beer and pint glasses from Widmer Brothers Brewing will be on hand for $5 to support Bike Works, and limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $40 each. Proceeds Admission is free. Visit http://artcrank.com/seattle for more information.
