New Art Of The Chopper Exhibition At Appleton Museum Of Art

aotc1aotc2“Art Of The Chopper” books and exhibitions have always strived to present motorcycles as both sculptural art and artifacts of American culture. The definition of a chopper is any conceptualized, one-of-a kind, and hand made motorcycle of exceptional design and originality, and that perfectly describes the 30 ostentatious yet beautiful custom bikes that will be presented in “Art of the Chopper” at the Appleton Museum of Art of Central Florida Community from Oct. 10 to Jan. 10, 2010. A series of photographs by Tom Zimberoff and display panels featuring background information on the bike’s builder are included in the exhibition. A series of special events and motorcycle-related programs will be presented at the museum on weekends during the three-month exhibition. Admission tickets for the exhibition are on sale at the museum,online at the Appleton Museum or call 352-291-4455.
