      CRUISIN’ CALIFAS: THE ART OF LOWRIDING WALK AND TALK

      The personalized automobiles known as “Lowriders,” are part of a subculture whose aesthetic tendencies cross over into the world of fine art. Lowrider describes a car that is typically customized with a hydraulic setup to be low to the ground, with an elaborate paint job, striking chrome features and uniquely designed upholstery. But this term reaches beyond cars, and has become a cultural phenomenon and way of life for many people. Today Lowrider culture can be seen not only in cars and motorcycles, but also in sculptures, photography and paintings as a way for people to express their individuality and cultural pride. This exhibition will feature a display of several full-size cars and motorcycles that have been created in the Lowrider style. Accompanying the vehicles will be paintings and sculptures made by the vehicle designers and owners and other prominent artists influenced by Lowrider culture in their artwork. Featured artists include Victor Cordero, Eddie Galindo, Rick Alvarez, David Avalos, Magu, Teen Angel and Salvador Gonzalez. Join the guest curators a walk and talk through the exhibition on July 14 at 2:00 p.m. Hear Lowrider stories and learn more about the artists and artwork in the exhibition. The talk is free with museum admission and complimentary for OMA members, students and military.

      Cost: Payment required - 0.00 to 8.00
