On 2 Wheels: San Francisco Motorcyclists at Work, School and Play

On view October 21, 2009-April 2, 2010, Rosenberg Library, 3rd Floor

On 2 Wheels: This exhibition explores San Francisco’s vibrant motorcycle     culture and highlights roles women have played, focusing on the 3  arenas of workforce, education and recreation. It is a collaborative project between San Francisco Public Library (SFPL) and City College of San Francisco (CCSF). Historical and contemporary content provides a means for examining gender equity in these arenas, at the same time highlighting books, magazines and websites available to all motorcycle enthusiasts through CCSF and SFPL. Together, both institutions make accessible to all  motorcycle enthusiasts resources that include: motorcycle repair manuals, books on career and vocational, recreational guides, classes and workshops.

Contributors to On 2 Wheels include: SFPL Business, Science & Technology Center; SFPL San Francisco Historical Photograph    Collection; CCSF Automotive & Motorcycle Technology       Department and CCSF Library & Learning Resources.

Additional photography supplied by Sarah Lyon and Tse-Shin Ping.
