Event Description

Misfits surveys 1960s biker subculture through film, literature, and Danny Lyon’s iconic photography portfolio, The Bikeriders. This 15-week feature exhibition incorporates a portion of that decade’s social landscape, exploring the influence the movement made on filmmakers, authors, and artists during this turbulent era. Included are vintage bikes and ephemera, plus firsthand stories documenting the Rockford motorcycle scene of the 1960s and the impact it had on the country. Full list of related education programs, including the Misfits Movie Monday Film Series (with The Wild Angels, Easy Rider, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), RAM Songwriter Series: Go Go Torpedo and Prairie Smoke, Poetry Open Mic Night, and much more at rockfordartmuseum.org.
