Harley-Davidson ‘Art of Rebellion’ | Exhibit

New York Art Show

ART OF REBELLION–the art show which brings together 10 iconic rock poster artists including Art Chantry, Brian Ewing, Derek Hess, Dirty Donny, Frank Kozik, Harpoon, John Van Hamersveld, Lindsey Kuhn, Tara McPherson and The Pizz– enjoyed a successful launch this past weekend in New York City at la.venue in Chelsea.

Frank Kozik, John Van Hamersveld, Dirty Donny, The Pizz, Harpoon, Tara McPherson, Brian Ewing and Lindsey Kuhn were on hand greeting fans and discussing their artwork. Attendees were able to purchase signed poster artwork from the artists while enjoying music from DJs DJ &mall Change (Friday) and DJ Ody Roc (Saturday).

"What a night! I had just arrived back in the country, and if there is a better way to get back into the swing of NYC than to go to the Art of Rebellion opening, I don’t know what it is," said Tara McPherson. "Surrounded by great art and artists as well as amazing fans, it was such a fun event all based around the rock and roll vibe of Harley-Davidson motorcycles."

"Art of Rebellion NYC was well-attended with lots of good stuff to look at–it offered something a little different," said Frank Kozik. "We’re thrilled people are coming out to see these artists who embody the rebellious spirit we connect with," said Susanne Dawursk, Harley-Davidson director of Outreach Marketing. "The Art Of Rebellion will be an on-going event supporting artists and the art community at large."

For the ART OF REBELLION show, each artist painted one Harley-Davidson Iron 883TM fuel tank and sold signature rock art posters. The Iron 883–part of the Harley-Davidson’s Dark Custom family which fuses minimalist design with a vintage feel–evokes the adventurous spirit of the dawn of the 60’s motorcycle rebellion. A portion of the proceeds raised from all tank sales will be donated to the CUE Art Foundation.

CUE Art Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit forum for contemporary art that gives artists, students, scholars and art professionals resources at many stages of their careers and creative lives:
