ArtCrank: A preview of the posters

Somehow, bicycles, graphic design and DIY culture have all become so entangled in a passionate love-grip that each is almost synonymous with the other. That's especially true in Denver, where all three reign supreme in indie circles, and we like it that way. For that reason, we also love Artcrank Denver, the annual event that brings all three together for a street party. That will happen tomorrow from 1 to 11 p.m. at the Lisa Kowalski Studio and Gallery, 2762 Walnut Street, and it's free. But Artcrank's true focal point is the art: extreme limited-edition posters designed locally by artists with bicycle fever that you can buy for only $30 apiece. See some after the jump.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
