The Bikeriders
Free public exhibit in our brick lobby

SEP 15, 2018 – NOV 11, 2018

Danny Lyon’s gripping, and often candid shots of bikerider life provide an insider’s perspective into a unique American counterculture. Lyon’s style of intensive reportage, what we might call ’embedded’ today, was unconventional in its time, and part of the emerging ‘New Journalism’ of the 1960s and 70s.

This exhibition presents highlights from the Bikeriders portfolio that have been generously gifted by Sally Strauss and Andrew Tomback.
