---The San Diego Automotive Museum presents
Bajito y Suavecito...Lowriders of Southern California
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 26, 6 ? 10p
Third Thursday Speaker Series: February 16 & March 16,7p
San Diego Automotive Museum, 2080 Pan American Plz #12 (Balboa Park), SD
January 27 ? March 27
619.818.0173 619.231. AUTO (2886 www.sdautomuseum.org
The San Diego Automotive Museum is funded, in part, by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts & Culture.

?Bajito y Suavecito? literally translates to ?low & slow,? a term often used to describe these remarkable cars that were born out of oppression & misunderstanding. In post-war LA, young Chicanos resisting intimidation took a symbol of white middle-class culture & turned it into a symbol of their own. This was the birth of the jaunty, colorful, road-hugging counterpart of the zoot suit. This was the birth of the auto phenomenon known as the lowrider. These cars have evolved a great deal since then & their appeal is international. They tell a story of personal & cultural history, frequently incorporating Catholic imagery as well as icons from Aztec mythology. Since many are now exclusively show cars & are no longer driven, this exhibit a unique opportunity to experience the cars, the culture, & the art ? a first for anywhere in SoCal.

The San Diego Automotive Museum is proud to be working with some of the finest auto artisans in the lowrider community on both sides of the border. In addition to the amazing cars, this exhibit features the work of Chicano artists David Avalos (sculpture), Eddie Galindo (ink on paper), Ricardo Islas (photography), Gilbert ?Magu? Lujan (sculpture & printmaking), Victor Ochoa (painting), Alberto Varela (photography),Crol one (sculpture), Werc one (painting & sculpture) & Victor Cordero - internationally known lowrider airbrush muralist & painter.

Historic artifacts from the 50's to the present will be on display including many original car club jackets from the lowrider clubs in SD. Rigo Reyes, founder of the San Diego Amigos Car Club, is a well-known & respected historian & culturist. His 1929 Willy?s will be featured in the show. One of the most famous lowriders in the United States will also be on display. The Gypsy Rose, a 1964 Chevy Impala, was featured on the television show Chico & the Man.

Dr. Denise Sandoval, a renowned authority on Chicano culture & lowriders, will speak on February 16. Rigo Reyes & Victor Ochoa will speak on March 16.
