We’ve partnered up with ArtCrank for a series of shows in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, Denver and Portland and we couldn’t be more excited.
What began as a small show in 2007 in Minneapolis has now become a traveling road-show to celebrate bike culture through art. ARTCRANK is a poster show about bicycles dedicated to making art as accessible as bikes are, and using creativity to change the way people think about cycling. Through live events featuring local artists, design collaborations, and social media conversations, ARTCRANK connects people around the world with the power of bikes, art and doing good.
To add some Timbuk2 flavor to our partnership we’ll be running a contest that will print 2 fan favorite posters onto limited edition Timbuk2 messengers. Anyone attending anyone of the 5 Timbuk2 sponsored events will be able to vote for their favorite poster using the #timbuk2artcrank hashtag. When we tally the votes at the end of the year, we’ll transform those two posters into liners for our Classic Messenger and create a very limited run of the bags. We can’t wait to see who gets selected!
Here’s just a tiny preview of the awesome bike art in store for us:
