This should be a good show, see you tonight!
Today is your last chance to reserve a very limited edition Artcrank jersey. Months in the making, this collaboration centers around the interaction of bikes + art, and embodies how Artcrank has been instramental in empowering two-wheel-loving designers to use their sweet skills and create original artwork based on what the bicycle means to them. This pre-order closes at midnight. Available for men & women.
I won’t be in attendance for this one, but you should go support these local artists!!! I have a couple close friends in this show and I’m bummed I’m missing their show, but hopefully Angelina Elise, Ashira Segal and my man Justin Kizzart will save a poster or two for me… Guys? Props to everyone in the show and the rest of you get to O20 tomorrow night!!!
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: Big news — ARTCRANK LAX kicks off this Saturday, December 8, but that’s just the beginning. Thanks to our swell hosts at Orange 20 Bikes and their new gallery space, Red#5 Yellow #7, we’ve extended the show to run through Monday, December 17. You’ll be able to see and buy all of the posters in the show during regular business hours.
This Saturday night, 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. In addition to awesome bike art, we’ll be serving craft beer by Widmer Brothers Brewing in ARTCRANK pint glasses, with proceeds benefitting L.A. Streetsblog, a nonprofit news organization covering the movement to transform transportation in Los Angeles by improving conditions for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders.
Orange 20 and Clif Bar will be teaming up to provide bonus bike parking and bite-sized snacks. And we’ll be showing off a stunning paper bike sculpture created by L.A.’s own Nona Varnado out of the best paper in the world — Neenah Paper.
