Chrome and Rust

I posted this photo earlier as an add-on to another view of the same wall, but thought it deserved its own post. This is the rivet wall at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The stainless steel rivets, engraved with a custom message or personal tribute and donor name are attached to a weathered, rusted wall.

According to Harley-Davidson, each rivet tells a story and you can listen to some of them • here.

The rivet wall currently consists of two curved sections and will grow significantly in the future.
