    • SD Lowriding featuring the Black Lowriders Association of San Diego (opening June 19, 2024) Lowriding in San Diego dates back to the 1950s and represents an intersection of cultures and communities with a wide reach in the postwar period. Black lowriders from Southeast San Diego cruised Imperial and Euclid, meeting at spots like Big Bear Market and Paul Lowe’s Liquor, in their cars that were sometimes driven straight to a hydraulics shop from the dealership. Although deeply rooted in the past, Black lowriders in San Diego are part of a thriving and dynamic community, with the Black Lowriders Association of San Diego committed to building bridges, fostering mentorship and positive influence, and uniting clubs across the western US.

    • SDAM’s Car Club Corner: Corvair Club (June 4, 2024 to March 3, 2025) The exhibit will feature one car and history of a club, starting with San Diego Corvair Club.
