Love Bikes? Love Posters? Get in on ARTCRANK Chicago!

ARTCRANK is a poster show about bicycles. Their goal is to make art as accessible as bikes are, and use creativity to change the way people think about cycling. They also throw amazing parties.

Right now, ARTCRANK is looking for designers and artists to create original, bike-inspired posters for their second show in Chicago, scheduled for Saturday, July 19.
