MILWAUKEE, SEPT., 9—MDA Ambassador Reagan Imhoff wanted the 
artwork she created with Harley-Davidson designer Mathew Hintz to “raise a
lot of money for MDA so we can have more scientists to make medicines.” The
 original drawing of a purple Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout motorcycle 
brought in $3500 on August 31 at the MDA auction during the 110th
 Anniversary Celebration. The pair hopes to raise even more with sales of the 
limited-edition signed prints, available through

“I’m happy our artwork raised some money, and hope we sell all of the
 prints!” said Reagan, who has spinal muscular atrophy, a painful
 neuromuscular disease. “It makes me feel really good that I can help MDA by 
sharing things I love to do. I can’t wait to make some more art with Mat, he
 was really fun to work with.”

Hintz will donate 10 percent of any commissioned artwork he paints through 
the end of 2013 to MDA. In addition, the pair is planning to work together on 
future projects including the MDA Black-N-Blue Ball in 2014. It’s rumored 
that piece may have butterflies.

“I’m excited to continue to raise funds for MDA and inspire Reagan’s 
artwork,” said Hintz, who has created logos for MDA events since 
1999. “It’s wonderful that we raised so much, and I’m honored to partner 
with MDA into the future.”

Mathew Hintz of Hintz Studios creates personalized and visceral motorcycle 
paintings by sculpting the canvas with layers of paint and coating it with a 
high-glass finish. He’s worked on hundreds of art-production pieces, from 
helmets to tank medallions to full paint schemes for motorcycles. Hintz graduated from Milwaukee Institute of 
Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1998.
