Milwaukee – March 21, 2013

Hanson Dodge Creative (HDC) brings together its passion for great design, the active lifestyle and a new Milwaukee bike sharing initiative with the opening of a colorful art exhibition this spring.

The exhibition, BIKE MKE, will feature the poster art of cycling enthusiast and designer, illustrator and artist, Michael Valenti. The Chicago-based designer has created a new, limited edition poster to commemorate the 2013 launch of Midwest BikeShare in Milwaukee. Valenti will unveil his newest creation at the exhibition’s opening reception on the evening of Thursday, March 21 at the HDC studios. Limited edition, silkscreen prints of the commemorative poster will be sold at the event, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Midwest BikeShare.

The exhibition will run through May 30 at the HDC studios, 220 E. Buffalo St. Admission is free and open to the public.
