The celebration of art and culture of Lowriders in the Midwest goes deep.

CHAPTER 5 (2015) | Film by Max Kitaev


Living not only in magazines and print, this thriving community and sub-culture is very much alive right here in the Midwest.

Master craftsmen, innovative mechanics, custom pin stripers and muralists contribute to the overall visual aesthetics of Lowrider culture and community.

Slow&Low: A Community Lowrider Festival is based in the industrial corridor of the Pilsen community.  We are the only lowrider community festival in Chicago bringing together car and bike clubs all across the Midwest. 

Not to be confused with an auto show, this festival brings together a curated entertainment line up of local talent, mariachis, families, children and a very special awards ceremony honoring Lowrider familia. 

In celebration of the beautifully rich and creative craftsmen within the lowrider community, the Chicago Urban Art Society founded the Chicago Lowrider Preservation Fund as a way to continue fundraising for the production of the SLOW&LOW festival as well as other creative projects inspired to promote the culture, the people and the enthusiasts.
