Con Cariño believes that it takes a special vision and a lot of hard work to transform an abandoned car into a one-of-a-kind sculpture on wheels, but that’s exactly what makes New Mexico’s lowriders so special. Though they are works of art in their own right, lowriders have also inspired artists working in other mediums. Con Cariño is our response to this unique cultural icon in photographs, paintings, sculptures, and videos, the artists in this exhibition explore issues of family, gender, religion, and status.
Con Cariño will have on view with more than fifty works by artists including Lawrence Baca & Ron Rodriguez, Justin Favela, Miguel Gandert, Alex Harris, Nicholas Herrera, Arthur Lopez, Norman Mauskopf, El Moisés, Jack Parsons, Meridel Rubenstein, Luis Tapia, Don Usner, and others.
Come and enjoy the opening night, free and open to the public with refreshments and live music!
