Captain America

Inspired by the motorcycle in the 1969 classic film Easy Rider, this piece made its debut at the Mesa Arts Center earlier this month. The sculpture was originally commissioned as a part of Mesa Contemporary Arts’ exhibition, Radical Rides, The “Art” of Motorcycles. I struggled a lot with the look and structure of this sculpture, especially balancing the piece between the two “tires” when the bulk of the weight rests in the middle. It came together, but nobody should try and sit on it.

And yes, the light works.
