Artcrank, a bicycle-themed poster art show premiering in Portland next month, has selected the local artists that will take part in the event.

The 31 artists will sell their work for $30 per print, with $5 of each sale going directly to Portland-based non-profit Bikes to Rwanda. The event will be held from 5:00 to 11:00 pm on Thursday, October 1st at The Cleaners at the Ace Hotel (403 SW 10th Ave.).

Among the artists selected to take part in the show are several whose names you might recognize for their previous work in the bike scene and/or as vendors at our annual BikeCraft event. They include:
