Lowriders on the Plaza

Friday night was the opening of El Favor de los Santos, an exhibition that Monica worked on, which features retablos from the NMSU collection. One of the additions made by the curator at the Palace was the inclusion of contemporary retablos, like a hood of a lowrider. So, for the opening, they had a whole bunch of lowriders in front of the Palace.



The ones with devotional images were placed close to the entrance of the exhibit.





(M+D — that could've been the Potemkin)






The above car's hood was the one that was on display; it had everything decorated — the inside of the trunk, the window; note the Virgin of Guadalupe on the edge of the door.











I think this car was my favorite . . .





though this one was sporting the treatment I'd like to give to the Golf:

I think a jump kit for the Golf would be fantastic! The whole point is to have rims that cost more than the whole car is worth. Wait, you may already be there, dude...

Could have been YOUR Potemkin if you had just accepted our generous offer...
