Bikes, art and beer - now there’s a happy combination.

Artcrank, billed as “a poster party for bike people,” moves to a larger venue this year to accommodate growing crowds. The festival, which features locally made, bike-inspired posters by 35 top designers, is set for 5-10 p.m. Friday at Fair Market, 1100 E. Fifth St.

Copies of posters will be on sale for $50 each.

Admission to the party is free.

The Artcrank concept got started in Minneapolis in 2007. Since then, Artcrank has hosted more than 40 bike poster parties across the United States and in Paris and London.

Proceeds from beer and cider sold at the Austin show will benefit Livestrong’s campaign to provide support services to people living with cancer.
