A Poster Show for Bike People

UPDATE: Bend, Oregon played host to the final ARTCRANK™ show of 2010 on Friday, December 10. We were proud and honored to be part of Cross Culture: Bike + Art Love, the community-wide celebration of the bicycle scheduled to coincide with Cyclo-Cross Nationals. 500+ fans enjoyed bike art by local artists and helped us raise more than $700 for Bikes To Rwanda.

Thanks to photographers Steve Tague and Joseph Eastburn for capturing the posters and people of ARTCRANK Bend in the images above. And thank you to our sponsors Visit Bend,  Deschutes Brewery, Superfeet and tbd loft for helping us throw an epic bike art party worthy of the sport’s most demanding race.

Please check back for updates, and follow ARTCRANK on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news.
