Harley-Davidson Museum Showing Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius
The Harley-Davidson Museum is opening a new exhibit featuring photographs from custom builder and artist Josh Kurpius.
Opening Jan. 17, the Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius art exhibit includes 30 photographs taken during a series of road trips Kurpius took with friends, all riding vintage Harleys. Kurpius’ own ride, a 1977 Harley-Davidson Ironhead Sportster nicknamed “The Locust”, will also be displayed in the Museum’s lobby for a portion of the exhibit.
“Josh’s photos embody the freedom and independence that is the very essence of Harley-Davidson,” says Bill Davidson, vice president of the Harley-Davidson Museum. “His photographs give visitors a look into a world of exploration and camaraderie that only the open road can provide.”
The Jan. 17 opening coincides with Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward Gallery Night, so admission is free that evening from 5 to 9 p.m. The Museum is also hosting an event Feb. 1 with Kurpius in attendance and a performance from musical guest Mount Salem.
