MotoPhotoShow returns to share the life, customs and creativity of the Midwest motorcycle culture

On January 13th of 2015 over 300 guests attended the opening night party to see 30 photographers exhibit 85 works at LuLu Café in the inaugural MotoPhotoShow.

We are pleased to announce that MotoPhotoShow will return with our third annual exhibit Friday, January 20th of 2017.

If you are a photographer interested in being a part of this event, we are accepting submissions from September 6, 2016 through November 30 2016. Click here for details.

In the Midwest our motorcycle culture is a unique part of our lives. In summer we ride dirt, in winter we spike our tires and tear across frozen lakes. We’re in garages wrenching with friends or we’re touring solo on the highways. Motorcycles are our common bond. MotoPhotoShow showcases the motorcycles, people, places and culture we capture in our cameras throughout the year.

Focused on the MidWest, our photographers document our world. They share visions that are close to home for our moto-families and will amaze anybody. Whether you’ve ridden a motorcycle or not, you’ll see yourself in our photos. Surrounded by friends around a fire or 90-miles-an-hour from the handlebars cruising down the highway.

As part of our inaugural event, MotoPhotoShow was featured in a segment of The Arts Page on Milwaukee PBS Channel 10. The segment captured our lively discussion about motorcycles and art, and how our parter LuLu Café’s plays a role as a public art space in the heart of Bay View.
