Curated by Erik Howard
Reception: Friday, April 10th 5-8 pm

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.

The Scarab Club will also be hosting an informal gallery talk with the curator and many of the participating artists of LOWRIDING: From Crenshaw to Woodward on Wednesday, April 29th, 6 pm.

Erik Paul Howard is a photographer as well as co-founder of Expressions and Young Nation in southwest Detroit. He combines his passion for youth and community development with his love of photography. Using group activities such as lowriding and street art as a mentoring tool, Erik has been able to reach out to young people in the community of southwest Detroit. Erik's photography documents his personal relationships and interactions in communities. It captures the excitement of people in their process of self discovery, development, and life experiences.
