Lowrider Show & Mi Gente Opening Celebration

September 2, 2023, 12:00 pm4:00 pm

Free

Join us for a lowrider car show and celebration for the whole family! This event is free, and will include kid-friendly art activities, live music, a performance by Ballet Folklórico de Barajas, and food for purchase from local businesses.

Attendees also will be invited to visit the Museum’s newest exhibition, Mi Gente: Manifestations of Community in the Southwest. Drawing from works in the collection stewarded by the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Mi Gente considers community within a landscape that has been shaped by colonization and migration. Focusing primarily on works by Chicanx/a/o, Hispanic, and Mexican American artists based in New Mexico and Colorado, Mi Gente considers the politics and complexities of community, including those who are perceived as outsiders.
