This week, I went to First Class Pack & Ship in Weymouth, MA to send my beaded motorcycle to Oregon! My beaded Buell X-1 Lightning entitled Free Parking Spot was juried into a large exhibition of motorcycles and motorcycle art at Coos Art Museum in Coos Bay, OR.
This exhibition is so big that the museum will be closing its doors beginning June 1st until the opening day. Taken from the museum’s website: “Since their invention, motorcycles have become a focus for popular interest and expression. This exhibition explores the public’s fascination with motorcycles and motorcycle culture. On display will be over 25 classic motorcycles from all eras and 62 examples of motorcycle related art works. Motorcycles on exhibition will include many models with an historical review of Harley-Davidsons from 1911 through 2011. The display will also be accompanied by many motorcycle related artifacts. This dual display will occupy both floors of the Museum and promises to be a major motorcycle and art event.”
