San Diego Art Institute says
The San Diego Art Institute (SDAI) and the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation invite you to join us for the "SDAI Street Art and Lowrider Festival" on Saturday, March 5th from 12-5pm. The SDAI Street Art and Lowrider Festival is a collaborative, family-style event celebrating the diverse cultures and artistic traditions of the area. The event will foster a collaborative sense of community, while showcasing Chicano and Americana art forms. This event is geared broadly toward artists, arts audiences, music lovers, car enthusiasts, and the general public. The festival is free and open to the public.

Check out some of the city’s most inspired lowrider cars, brought to us by Amigos Car Club and the San Diego Lowrider Council. Selected event artists include: Creative Catalyst grantee Noe Olivas, who will showcase his "lowrider van" that opens into an interactive art space; renowned Tijuana street artists PANCA; stencil artist Pierce Williams; and printmaker Kim Cruz, who will run a children’s printmaking activity from 3-4pm. Join us at 12:30pm for a screening of Alberto Pulido and Kelly Whalen’s film "Everything Comes from the Streets," which documents the lives and voices of the pioneers of the lowriding movements in the borderlands of San Diego and Tijuana. The event will also feature musical performances by Cumbia Machin, The Johnny Deadly Trio, and Hard Fall Hearts, from 2-5pm, and DJ's throughout the day provided by Radio Pulso Del Barrio.
Don’t miss Famoso Mexican Street Food truck, who’ll be on-site selling their renowned tacos and TJ dogs! In addition, the following Barrio Logan galleries have sponsored artists to create and sell work at the festival: Voz Alta - Ricardo Islas; Chicana Art Gallery - Cesar Castañeda & Sholove; Flying Panther Tattoo - Rob Benavides (who has designed a special events t-shirt for sale that day); and The Roots Factory - Jaclyn Rose. SDAI also thanks Rigo Reyes of the San Diego Lowrider Council, and DJ Ana Brown for their organizational support.

The Street Art and Lowrider Festival will take place at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation at 404 Euclid Avenue, San Diego, CA 92114 from 12-5pm on Saturday, March 5. For more information, call SDAI at 619.236.0011 or visit
