 Fine Art Fridays  Comments Off on Art Exhibition Update(s) and Art Talk Tonight
Jul 092009

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!

Most of you are well aware that I exhibit my biker related artwork internationally and feel that I am very fortunate to do so.  I have been at it a long time and it seems that more and more venues are popping up that are willing to exhibit bikes and biker related imagery.  I think it all hit the mainstream with the HUGE exhibit, The Art Of The Motorcycle that debuted in NYC’s Guggenheim back in the 1990’s.  I remember riding down from my home in Boston to check it out.  It ended up being one of, if not the most attended exhibit the Guggenheim has ever seen gratis musiken android!

In any case, this week we have four big exhibition announcements to bring to you and I hope you can attend at least on of the events.

First, Danny Lyons amazing document of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club during the 1960’s, entitled The Bikeriders, is currently on exhibit at the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah.  I have not had the opportunity to see this entire collection on display at the same time, but have seen some of the images over the years.  Beautiful!  Really worth checking out.  If you can’t get to the show, do yourself a favor and pick up the book by Danny by the same name as the exhibit.  The show runs through July 26th and you can find out more by visiting the website

Second, Sunday, July 12, the SURU Gallery in Los Angeles, California will open up the show Celeritas (Latin for Speed) beats herunterladen kostenlos. The artists participating in this exhibit are: Alex Pardee, Jeff McMillan, Stash, Barry McGee (aka Twist and the artist painting the Hayabusa, who is also featured on the cover of the latest issue (#14) of Swindle magazine), Futura, Mark Dean Veca, Usugrow, Joe Hahn, Jim Lee, Jesse James, Troy Lee, James Jean, Audrey Kawasaki, Darren Romanelli, aka DRx, Nathan Cabrera, Mike Shinoda, Estevan Oriol amazon prime playlist herunterladen. A display of fine art inspired by passion’s urgency, themed through the medium of motorcycling, and realized on the objects of road racing culture such as a motorcycle, helmets and apparel will be the focus of the show netflix app serien herunterladen.

Third, we have The Wind In Your Hair: Vintage Motorcycles being exhibited at The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft in Louisville from July 18 to September 19, 2009 bücher kostenlos online lesen unden. The exhibit will feature vintage motorcycles manufactured from 1900 to 1970, memorabilia and accessories, three motorcycle-related photography collections by Michael Lichter, Danny Lyon and Sarah Lyon, and kinetic lamp sculptures created from recycled motorcycle parts by Randel Bird.  The Museum will also host a series of restoration and customizing workshops and lectures about collecting motorcycles and the cultural influences of motorcycles in the 20th and 21st centuries and save images.

The exhibit will include rare, unusual and landmark motorcycles of all kinds, including ACE, BMW, Cushman, Douglas, Eagle, Indian, Harley, Excelsior, Motomarini, Triumph, Sunbeam, and Velocette download video by link. One of the oldest bikes featured will be a 1911 Yale, with a tandem seat and original paint designs. This rare, early 20th century bike is the only one still in existence today kostenlose musik downloads deutsche schlager.

Fourth in the line up of shows is going to be up and available during Sturgis Bike Week in South Dakota this year.  This will be the first annual Tom Zimberoff Art of the Chopper Photography Exhibition.  Again, if you are not familiar with this body of work, you might like to pick up one or both of the Art of the Chopper books that Zimberoff has available.  Tom has not only created beautiful documents of the custom machines that builders have created, but has done a wonderful job of creating striking portraits of each of the builders in their own shops.  It should make for a nice show and will run from August 1st to 10th, from 10am to 6 pm at “The Monkey Rock”, 13010 SD Highway 34, Sturgis SD 57785 fortnite download pc free epic games.

Lastly, we have another Art of the Chopper exhibition.  This one has recently debuted at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas.  I am unsure as to how much this show will differ from the exhibit at the Monkey Rock in Sturgis, but I believe it will be a much more thorough display including 30 actual bikes displayed as sculptural pieces and accompanied by Tom’s photographs and detailed background information.  This show is also in Florida, so any of you who can’t make the trek up to Sturgis, but are in the Southeast portion of the country might be able to make it down herunterladen. Ocala Appleton Museum of Art is located at 4333 E. Silver Springs Blvd. (State Road 40) in Ocala; FL. Tickets go on sale July 15 at the museum or go to the Ocala Appleton Museum Website.  The show will be up from Oct. 10, 2009 to Jan. 10, 2010.  Might be worth a side trip while you are down there for Biketoberfest.

Love, Respect, and Biker Art,
