Vanguard Views

The Vanguard Views Exhibit at the Birmingham Museum of Art caught my eye recently.  I got so caught up in photographing this vintage motorcycle, I completely forgot to photograph the information about it. Not to worry, I contacted Graham Boettcher, the BMA's curator for American art and he had all the answers.  This exhibit was actually curated by their UAB curatorial intern Bethany McClellan, who Graham credits with the idea and the exhibit itself.

He also provided me with this information about the motorcycle: 

Manufactured by the Société des Moteurs Gnome et Rhône
France (founded 1915)
Collection of the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum
