While the connection between Harley-Davidson the company and the rebellious image of the biker isn’t exactly firm, there’s always something interesting about corporately sponsored art events created to foster myth. Harley has invited 11 artists (including everyone’s favorite Shepard Fairey) to react to the theme of rebellion. Their canvas, the gas tank of a “Sportster 883.” The results will be on view for a single night, February 7, 2009 at the Robert Bergman Gallery in Santa Monica’s Bergamot Station Art Center. A portion of the proceeds from The Art of Rebellion benefits Art Matters.
