The ninth incarnation of Michael's Motorcycles as Art Exhibit will be held in the new Lichter Exhibition Hall at The Legendary Buffalo Chip. This year's show, Rebel Rousers, Motorcycle Icons that Inspire Us To Ride will run from Saturday August 1st through August 8th and be open 10 am to 10 pm daily.

Here's the official release:

The ninth year of Michael Lichter’s Motorcycles as Art Exhibit puts the icons who inspired us to ride in the spotlight. Rebel Rousers, the official title, has its home in the 7,000 square foot gallery and features the vintage history of the motorcycle attitude. This stunning review of world-class motorcycles, art and movie memorabilia takes visitors through a visual display to recapture some of the original sense of the word “icon” as it refers to symbols and revered images.

On display will be motorcycles, from Captain America and Billy bike to Dave Mann’s Ghostrider, and memorable images like Rollie Free flying down the salt, as well as posters and stills from films like The Wild One, On Any Sunday and Easy Rider. All of the objects in the show have in some way become sacred to bikers. They have inspired -- and will continue to inspire -- the devotion of enthusiasts. In addition to looking back, the exhibit will look at contemporary images and bikes that may be considered iconic to future generations of bikers, such as films from Biker Boyz to The Worlds Fastest Indian, and motorcycles like Jesse James’ “Camel Bike” and Indian Larry’s “Wild Child” BBO bike. The exhibit includes more than 100 pieces that equally define the meaning of icon and make the 9th Annual Motorcycles as Art exhibit a masterpiece.

Rebel Rousers is brought to you by these fine sponsors Interstate Batteries, Metzeler Motorcycle Tires, Progressive Motorcycle Insurance and Spectro Oil. Rebel Rousers will open Saturday August 1st at 10am and will be open each day thereafter from 10am to 10pm. The exhibit is a legendary display and has no cost to attend. Free parking is located at the east gate where the Lichter Exhibition Hall is conveniently located.

Here is the custom artwork and logo created for the show:
