Over 200 gallery visitors, which included students, staff, faculty, and members of the local community, enjoyed viewing “Lowride Worldwide” at the opening reception on Thursday, September 14, at the Skyline College Art Gallery.
“Lowride Worldwide” provides a fascinating view of the spread of lowrider culture to Japan and beyond. The exhibition features two exquisitely painted 1954 Chevrolet lowrider cars, photographs, drawings, prints, historical artifacts, and plenty of other documentation of the lowrider communities in Japan, inviting the viewer to deeply investigate complex themes of multi-cultural appropriation and influence. This show has generated a buzz on campus, and visitors to the gallery want to know how two fully dressed lowriders were brought into the art gallery!
