Custom Motorcycles are Self-Expression in Richmond

It’s not often that an art exhibition encourages its visitors to bring their motorcycles to an opening, but Countersteer curators Danny Aarons and Phil Linhares are interested in the personal style an individual’s bike can convey—whether customization decisions are made for formal or functional reasons. Twelve custom motorcycles fill the art center’s main gallery, along with paintings, sculptures and a quilt illustrating its maker’s journeys on the open road. In light of Peter Fonda’s recent passing, consider this a timely celebration of the evolution of motorcycle culture. —Sarah Hotchkiss
