Tonight: Party for Streetsblog With ARTCRANK and Bicycle Habitat

Please come out for the first-ever New York City ARTCRANK show, tonight at Bicycle Habitat in Soho.

The show will feature cycling-inspired posters created by 25 local artists, available for purchase, along with Widmer Brothers beer in ARTCRANK pint glasses. There will also be a raffle for a new Globe Roll 8 bicycle, donated by Globe Bikes. Proceeds from the raffle, the bar, and sales of the bike poster by Big Table Studios will benefit Streetsblog and Streetfilms.

Thanks to ARTCRANK, Bike Habitat, Neenah Paper, Widmer Brothers, and all the artists for this one-of-a-kind event. The party starts at 5:00 p.m., and admission is free.
