"Lowriders: Chicano Culture From Low to Slow to Show"

10/11/2013 - 4:30pm - 5:30pm

Lowriding is a form of expressive culture that fits within the broader context of Chicano culture and reflects the social, artistic and political dimensions of America's fastest-growing ethnic group. With striking photos, author Chuck Tatum will demonstrate the unique aesthetics of lowrider vehicles and he will briefly trace the mechanics of building a lowrider vehicle, and lowrider culture in the media. He will also trace how lowrider culture has recently expanded beyond the urban streets and into the massive exhibit halls of lowrider shows, exposing lowrider culture to even more enthusiasts.

This event is presented by the UA College of Humanities, Spanish.
