Collected by famed artist and rider Jeff Decker, Hell’s Union: Motorcycle Club Cuts as American Folk Art is an exhibition at the University of California Riverside ARTSblock that features defunct motorcycle club cuts, or vests, and their assorted, colorful club colors, or patches, that represent a unique form of American folk art embodying the freedom and nonconformity of bikers. Jeff Decker is a historian and artist famed for his bronze sculptures of vintage motorcycles. He grew up surrounded by the car culture of southern California in the 60s.
