Lowrider Exhibit at Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose

I am so proud to say that there is no doubt that the lowrider culture has played a big part in San Jose’s landscape.  San Jose is where Lowrider Magazine was founded!  Finally an exhibit has arrived.  Story and King:  San Jose’s Lowrider Culture Exhibit has been at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library since December 15th of last year.  Good thing is that it will run till March 31st so you still have time to enjoy it.
