The Motorcycle, Italian Style:Riding the Curves with MV AgustaSponsored by Cliff's Cycle RevolutionSaturday, September 8, 2007 - Sunday, January 6, 2008Member's Opening Reception, Friday, September 7, 2007Director's Circle Dinner, Friday, November 2, 2007Transportation meets art in The Motorcycle, Italian Style: Riding the Curves with MV Agusta, which opens at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center on Saturday, Sept. 8. A special Members Preview Reception will be held Friday, September 7 at 5:30 p.m. This exhibition is made possible with support from the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism.This vintage motorcycle exhibition traces the MV Agusta brand from its World War II inception to today. More than 30 bikes, most from the Classic era (1945-1980), will be on display throughout the Bendel Mansion Museum Galleries until Jan. 6, 2008.This "edgier" exhibition is the first motorcycle show the museum has ever displayed. "We've always found our audience to be very interested in transportation and design issues," said Curator of Collections Rosa Portell. "It offers us a perfect opportunity to underscore the principle that art can be found not only in the traditional media, the kind that hangs in museums, but in these beautiful machines which are, themselves, art works.""Museums take objects and interpret them for the public. Hopefully, we'll help people see things that they may not have thought about," Portell said. In this show, isolated parts of the machines will be display on pedestals as objects of beauty.And for children, Chica, MV Agusta factory's guard dog, will guide them through the exhibition. Tots 2 to 4 years old will be able to ride toy bikes in their special section in the Bendel Mansion Great Hall, as they learn about safety on two-wheeled vehicles.
