Phantom Sightings Fiesta
featuring Low & Slow: The Art of The Lowrider
August 22, 2009, Noon to Midnight
Throughout Phoenix Art Museum Grounds
In conjunction with Phantom Sightings: Art After the Chicano Movement, this very unique event will feature the works of Lowrider artists from the Southwest. It also includes a special dedication of the Official Lowrider Hall Of Fame pictorial and some of the hottest Lowrider cars and bikes to hit the show floor.
From noon to 4pm, activities will be focused inside where families can explore galleries filled with Latino and Chicano inspired art or maybe roll up their sleeves and try their hand at a printmaking workshop. Masks and music are provided by Zarco Guerrero.
As evening approaches almost 100 Lowrider cars and bikes will be on display throughout the Museum grounds. The fiesta style atmosphere will be family-friendly featuring live music from five Latino bands and DJs, breakdancing, late access to the galleries, live artist demonstrations, sumptuous food, drinks and more.
Admission FREE for car show.
