A significant aspect of Detroit history is the role its automotive industry played in putting the world on wheels. Lowrider culture emerged in Los Angeles and migrated back to Detroit. The Scarab Club exhibition showcases Lowrider cars and bicycles. The exhibition includes work from across the country, highlighting the cultural impact of Lowriders.

 

Please join us for an informal gallery talk with the curator and many of the participating artists on Wednesday, April 29th, 6 pm.
