"Writer Thomas Merton said, 'Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time,'" says Jeffrey V. Heininger, chairman of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, which oversees the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame. "Well, the same is true with motorcycling. So the combination of motorcycling, unique images and stunning artworks into a one-of-a-kind motorcycling art exhibit is certain to inspire everyone who sees it.
"We are very fortunate to have so many talented artists taking part in this new exhibit," Heininger added. "Several of the artworks have been created specifically for this exhibit, so there will be many fresh interpretations of motorcycling in various art forms. I'm very excited about this new addition to the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame."
