Artcrank is back!  If you love affordable bike art, this event is for you.

ARTCRANK returns to its Warehouse District roots with an Opening Night Party on Saturday, April 14. The 2012 edition of ARTCRANK MSP will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by 40 local artists. Admission is free, and limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $40 each.

Enjoy craft beers by Widmer Brothers Brewing in exclusive ARTCRANK pint glasses — all proceeds benefit Springboard for the Arts.

Riding to the show? Clif Bar and One On One Bike will provide free valet bike parking.

Metro Magazine is wrangling a small army of your favorite food trucks and carts to tempt your palate.

Neenah Paper and Big Table Studio are teaming up to create something three-dimensionally biketastic that we’re keeping under wraps for now…

Our soundtrack will be provided by The Current, with a special appearance by Mayda. So yeah, you want to be there.

And hey, if you’re looking for something to do with the kids, get the day started at the ARTCRANK Family Party, hosted by Clockwork from 3:00 – 5:00, with obstacle course races, safety games and demonstrations, and enough fun and prizes to keep everyone cranking all afternoon.
