Lowrider Show & Mi Gente Opening Celebration

September 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Join us for a lowrider car show and opening celebration of Mi Gente: Manifestations of Community in the Southwest! 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. 

Join collections staff in the Agents of Care Gallery to learn about the work that went into preparing the collections for display.

Reservations to the opening celebration encouraged
