This year’s exhibition will be held at the Legendary Buffalo Chip, located four miles east of Sturgis on Highway 34, and will explore motorcycle culture through a thematic presentation of motorcycles and graphic arts. World famous motorcycle photographer Michael Lichter has chronicled the Sturgis Rally through his photography since 1979, and has served as curator of the “Motorcycles As Art” exhibition since its inception in 2001. The talent of the featured artists, combined with Lichter’s unique vision, has established the event as an essential part of the Sturgis Rally experience.
“The exhibition serves as a way to showcase the work of the industry’s top talent under one roof, and we’re excited about this year’s change of venue,” said Lichter. “The space being built specially for the exhibit, combined with the Legendary Buffalo Chip’s unique atmosphere are sure to make this the best exhibit yet”. The Lichter Exhibit will be on display at the Legendary Buffalo Chip from Saturday, August 1st through Saturday, August 8, 2009. Admission is free to the public. The “Motorcycles As Art” exhibition’s theme and a list of participating artists, along with the Chip’s full schedule of events will be announced soon. More information is available at Buffalo Chip
