The Wind in Your Hair: Vintage Motorcycles


Classic paintings and rare vases will be moved to one side in a Kentucky museum to make room for the art and beauty of the motorcycle.

The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft will present 'The Wind in Your Hair: Vintage Motorcycles' from July 18 to September 19, 2009. The exhibit will feature vintage motorcycles manufactured between 1900 to 1970, memorabilia and accessories, and three motorcycle-related photography collections by Michael Lichter, Danny Lyon and Sarah Lyon.

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.
Kicking the exhibit off with an open reception on July 17th, the evening will feature a demonstration of pin striping techniques by local artist Miss Pinny and a motorcycle caravan.

The opening reception is free and open to the public, with leather attire optional, and some would say, expected.
