Be among the first to see our newest exhibit and the kickoff of "Lowrider Summer" in collaboration with the New Mexico Museum of Art. Lowriders, Hoppers, and Hot Rods: Car Culture of Northern New Mexico at the New Mexico History Museum through March 5, 2017, celebrates these mobile works of art as well as their makers—home-grown Nuevomexicanos who customize, detail, paint and upholster these favorite symbols of Hispanic culture. Opening events include a free photo booth to take a souvenir of the day, screenings of the film, South American Cho Low, and a 2 pm lecture about the history of the nationally renowned Lowrider Magazine by Albuquerque correspondent and photographer Travis Ruiz.
