More outrageous lowriders join Petersen exhibit
Even more reason to see the sell-out Petersen Museum lowriders exhibit – more cars have been added and opening hours extended
The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles has added to its hugely popular lowriders exhibit with four more stunning, groundscraping examples of the genre, which has gained mainstream attention in the USA during 2017.
The new lowriders include a 1963 Chevrolet Impala Convertible Slippin’ Into Darkness by Cleto Sanchez, a 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass RM Series by Bobby Garza (Lowrider of the Year 2014), a 1958 Chevrolet Impala Lemonlaid by Danny Arriaga, and a 1972 Monte Carlo Fatal Attraction by Jose Alvarez.
The new additions complement the existing display, which highlights Our Family Car, a 1950 Chevrolet Sedan painted by legendary artist Gilbert 'Magu' Luján; El Rey, a 1963 Chevrolet Impala by Albert De Alba Sr.; El Muertorider, a customized 1968 Chevy Impala by Artemio Rodríguez and John Jota Leaños; and Gangster Squad ’39, a 1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe by Mister Cartoon.
The exhibition, named 'The High Art of Riding Low: Ranflas, Corazón e Inspiración', opened in July, and has attracted high visitor numbers and widespread media attention for highlighting not just the cars but also the highly ornate art of the Chicano culture. It coincides with – and has encouraged – an increase in mainstream interest in lowriders, which has also seen lowriders exhibited at the Amelia Island concours, and the famous Gypsy Rose lowrider inducted into the National Historic Vehicle Register during 2017.
Since opening in July, the Petersen lowrider exhibit has been met with outstanding reviews for its examination of the lowrider as an artistic catalyst and cultural icon in the Los Angleles community. The exhibit includes a range of works, from installations to lithographs, sculptures to drawings, paintings to photography, as well as the cars themselves. Located in the Armand Hammer Foundation Gallery, the exhibit will continue to be on display until July 2018.
'We are thrilled to welcome more lowriders as an expansion of the extremely popular lowrider exhibition,' said Executive Director Terry L Karges. 'It’s clear that our community truly loves and appreciates these elaborate masterpieces for the purpose they serve as embodiments of fine art and Chicano culture in Los Angeles.'
Such is the popularity of the exhibition, the museum will be extending its hours to 8pm from 22 December 22 to January 7. To learn more please visit the Petersen website.
