Last Friday I posted about five amazing new art exhibitions coming up that concern bikes, bikers, and the biker lifestyle.  I have also had the privilege of being contacted by a couple museum folks with some more specific info apple ios 13 downloaden.

The first comes in the form of a comment from Corinne from the Kimball Art Center… she mentions that tonight, Thursday, July 9, they are presenting a FREE art talk–using Bikeriders as a backdrop, Art History/Photographer Professor James Swensen will talk about photo culture/counter culture of the 1960s gta pc spiel kostenlos.  If you are in the area, please check this out and let me know what you think!

The second is a longer note from artist/photographer Tom Zimberoff himself apps herunterladen bei android.  I am printing it as it came to me:

FYI, the exhibition at the Appleton Museum will be every bit as extensive as the Clinton Library show, including 125 photographic prints, including the large-format portraits of the artists who created the choppers alarmstufe rot 2 yuris rache kostenlos downloaden.

I’m not sure the Sturgis event will be “annual;” we’ll see how successful it is this first time around. It’s hard to fill up an air-conditioned, track-lighted 53′-long trailer with new prints every year, especially because I don’t actively shoot anymore Download comedy audiobooks for free. We will feature one chopper inside the truck: Trevelen’s El Peligroso. I will include the “Wall of Portraits,” with 58 examples of the portraits I have made of artists in the chopper genre do not download whatsapp image automatically. Many of them will be making unscheduled pit stops to show off their bikes and sign autographs in front of our truck situated at MonkeyRock.


Incidentally, I always try to point out that the Appleton and Clinton shows are, indeed, art shows not “bike shows.” Ours is the first and only comprehensive collection of motorcycles created explicitly as contemporary art hp scanner software free download. It raises the bar for prestige, extending the appeal of custom motorcycles to a broader audience, beyond the motorcycling community. It is further distinguished by its emphasis on the roles of individual artists in addition to the influences of their work ps4 game via mobile phone.

It’s been more than a decade since the Guggenheim Museum’s exhibition of The Art of the Motorcycle debuted. It is still the fifth most successful art show of all time worldwide Download skillet monster. With more than three million attendees in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Bilbao it rivals The Treasures of Tutankhamun. That number seems like reason enough for a corollary exhibition. The Clinton and Appleton represent our “off-Broadway” rehearsal runs. Our goal is to bring AOTC to the Smithsonian, the Getty, MoMA . . . perhaps Centre Pompidou in Paris and another venue in Asia.

The Guggenheim didn’t set out to acknowledge artists. It presented a chronological collection of commercially-produced motorcycles to illustrate the evolution of twentieth century industrial design. There were virtually no examples—a single knock-off copy—of the V-twin paradigm that inspires the culture of custom motorcycles, an art form as indigenous to America as jazz, rock ’n’ roll, that has been similarly embraced and transformed worldwide.

Well, that’s it for a Sunday morning. Keep up the good work. I hope to see you in Sturgis or Ocala.

With my best regards,



Thanks to both for sending me info and updates… I look forward to seeing the shows if I can and wish the best of luck to all the exhibitors.

Love, Respect, and Fine Art!
