Sensuous Steel: Art Deco Automobiles
This is a unique exhibition at the Frist Center for Visual Arts in Nashville, TN of Art Deco automobiles from some of the most renowned car collections in the United States.There's a couple of motorcycles in the exhibit, a Tim Burton Batman-esque KJ Henderson fully enclosed Streamliner and the Indian. Man, they sure built beautiful motorcycles back in the day, didn't they? Oh, sure, they were cantankerous and required a bit of finessing every once in a while, but you sure looked good riding one. Modern motorcycles are a lot more reliable and have things like fuel injection and disc brakes, so not only will the bike start every time, it'll also stop!
Inspired by the Frist Center’s historic Art Deco building, this exhibition features spectacular automobiles and motorcycles from the 1930s and ‘40s that exemplify the classic elegance, luxurious materials, and iconography of motion that characterizes vehicles influenced by the Art Deco style.
