On October 21, 2011, Chrome held their 3rd annual ARTCRANK party at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco. Teaming up with Widmer Brothers Brewing, all the proceeds from the Chrome Customs bag raffle and beer sales benefited the SF Bike Coalition, a bicycle advocacy group whose goal is to “create safer streets and more livable communities for all San Franciscans”.
Over 30 local artists, including Adrianna Bamber, Alan Hynes, Alex Griendling, Andrei Bouzikov, Brent Couchman, Brooke Appler, Caleb Kozlowski, Chris McNally, David Pauli, David McAtee, Erin Butner, GIGART, Heather Hardison, Hugh D’Andrade, Javier Garcia, Jayde Cardinalli, Jessica Henry, Joseph Arruda, Katrina McHugh, Lil Tuffy Tuffington, Mackey Saturday, Matt Fleming, Matthew Meikle, Megan Mock, Meghan Newell, Michael Jeter, Michael Morgan, Molly Osborne, Richard Perez, Sean D. Williams, Stevil Kinevil, Superdeux, Thom Pastrano, Will Ecke for Albert + Marie, and Ven Gist created bicycle-inspired, limited edition, handmade posters that were available for purchase.
The artwork was selling like hotcakes, libations were flowing and DJ ORB kept the party going. A night of art, bikes and beer to benefit a great cause…what could be better!
