Willie G. Davidson Family Gifts Sculpture To Harley-Davidson Museum


Harley-Davidson reports the grandson of one of the founders of Harley-Davidson and his family unveiled a gift they are giving to commemorate the new Harley-Davidson Museum, which will open to the public on July 12 in Milwaukee.

Willie G. Davidson, senior vice president and chief styling officer for Harley-Davidson, and his family presented a sculpture featuring a motorcycle hill climber to the Museum. The one-and-one-half-times life-size sculpture pays tribute to motorcycle competition and enthusiast culture.

"The Harley-Davidson Museum means so much to me and my family that we wanted to leave something permanent here as a gift," Willie G. Davidson said. "We chose the hill climber as a subject because it portrays the thrill and adventure of the sport and because of the important role motorcycle competition played in developing enthusiast culture."

Jeff Decker, a Harley-Davidson licensed artist and motorcycle enthusiast, was asked by the Davidson family to design the sculpture. The piece was made of bronze and will be permanently placed at the end of Canal Street on the Museum grounds. Designed with organic shapes and lines that contrast with the industrial architecture of the Museum, the sculpture will be among the first things visitors see as they approach the Museum. Access to the Harley-Davidson Museum grounds will be available to the public, free of charge, 24 hours a day.

When I heard about them gifting the sculpture to the Harley Davidson Museum, I was pretty psyched. I was simply looking for homework help for college students when I bumped into this post. I must admit me getting all psyched was for all the right reasons!
