The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art will host a one-time exhibition of American motorcycle artwork that will feature some of the country’s top American motorcycle artists.
The exhibition, “Wind Blown: American Motorcycle Fine Art,” will encapsulate the art and lifestyle of the American motorcyclist through oil paintings, watercolors, photography, sculpture, and custom built motorcycles.
“Wind Blown” will feature the work of Harley-Davidson licensed painters Scott Jacobs and David Uhl, photographer Michael Lichter, and sculptor Jeff Decker as well as custom motorcycles from Arlen Ness, Billy Lane, Indian Larry, and Hank Young. The exhibition will run from Saturday, May 14, through Sunday, Aug. 14.
The grand opening celebration will take place on Saturday, May 21, and begin with a charity ride hosted by The March of Dimes. The artists are scheduled to be available throughout the grand opening event. Local artisans also will be on-site to demonstrate their painting and metalwork techniques.
“The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art has successfully featured the work of Winslow Homer, Norman Rockwell, the Wyeths, and
Dale Chihuly,” said Patricia Duggan, director of the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art.
“This is quite a departure for us, but discussions with people in the Marietta and Cobb County communities indicate that this may be one of our most popular exhibitions yet. It’s amazing how many people have already wanted to share their memories about riding a motorcycle. They can’t wait to see the exhibition.”
The Atlanta Ride to Save Babies continues to be one of the largest motorcycle fundraising rides in the country, raising more than $4.2 million dollars locally.
