The Harley-Davidson Tradition Mural – York, Pennsylvania

The Harley-Davidson Tradition Mural – York, Pennsylvania

The Harley-Davidson Tradition

York, Pennsylvania is home to many wonderful murals scattered around the city. One, in particular, caught my eye. The mural is called The Harley-Davidson Tradition and was painted by Michael Svob in 1996.

As you can imagine any public art related to motorcycling tugs at my heartstrings. After discovering it somewhere on the internet, I immediately pinned the location of the mural on to my huge Google map of things to see in hopes that one day I would do just that.

York has been home to a Harley-Davidson plant since 1973. The plant offers tours on which visitors can get a glimpse of the assembly and manufacturing process.

In 1973, Harley-Davidson moved its final assembly plant to the York area, transforming a factory that had made bombs and bowling balls into the birthing room for an American icon. Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton visited the plant while they were in office, as do tens of thousands of tourists each year. Many of them also make a pilgrimage to the Harley mural.

Ceresota Flour Advertising Mural – Riegelsville, PA

This spring after spending the night in a caboose, I decided to take the long way home and to stop and see a few stars on my Google Maps app. One of the things I was most looking forward to is this Cerasota Flour mural.

Sadly, my car looks way lame posed with roadside stops when compared to my motorcycle. I need to rectify that.

I see a trip to the emergency room coming up!

Just a lovely mural.

Get Ready to See the Greatest Mural Ever!

Get Ready to See the Greatest Mural Ever!

Hands down, the most incredible mural I saw while visiting Lynn, Massachusetts, and perhaps that I’ve ever seen is this collab between JPO and Miss Zukie.

“Zukies are a fluffy and chubby character that don’t talk,” the Peru native said. “They communicate with facial expressions and thought bubbles.”

They sound like my people!

I’m in love.

See this mural on Google Maps. Better yet, go see it in person. It is awesome!

Beyond Walls – Lynn, Massachusetts Murals and Vintage Neon

Beyond Walls – Lynn, Massachusetts Murals and Vintage Neon

The town of Lynn, Massachusetts has been incredible-ized by a program called Beyond Walls, which features neighborhood beautification with vintage neon, sculpture and gorgeous murals.

We activate spaces that foster more livable, economically viable, and equitable communities while retaining the voice and integrity of area residents.

On Saturday I zipped up north to take in the sights. It was fantastic. Never having been to Lynn before, I found myself wishing I had company and time to stay the night and explore all the nooks and crannies on foot. The downtown area featured walkable streets with interesting sights. It seemed like a great place to have a drink and go for a stroll on a warm spring evening.

Here are a few of the sights from my day trip:
