Harley-Davidson Museum | 2015 Exhibit Honors Willie G.Beginning this summer, the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee will feature a special exhibit dedicated to a Motor Company icon – Willie G. Davidson.

Willie G. Davidson exhibit at H-D MuseumThe exhibit – “Willie G. Davidson: Artist, Designer, Leader, Legend” begins June 13 and runs through September 7 at the Harley-Davidson Museum (400 West Canal St., Milwaukee, Wis.).

Willie G. – the grandson of one of the original founders William A. Davidson – spent 49 years working for Harley, and was one of 13 executives who raised more than $75 million to purchase the American brand from AMF Incorporated back in 1981.

Willie G., who also gained fame after designing the 1971 Super Glide, will be honored during the exhibit in many ways.

Harley-Davidson says “Housed in the Garage special event space, visitors will experience a celebration of the artistry, influence and impact of a man whose designs have defined American motorcycles for generations.

“Key elements include previously unseen historical artifacts and items from Willie’s personal collection that provide insight into his unique perspective, personal style, creative process, inspiration and influences. In addition, one-of-a-kind vehicles, original designs, art, rare artifacts and media paint an engaging portrait of this iconic figure, his influential career, legacy, and current work.”

Harley says additional details will be released in spring. For additional information, visit Harley-Davidson Museum.
