If you and all your friends want to know the lowrider, Chandler's Vision Gallery has the perfect exhibit for you.

The big picture: Vision Gallery is hosting Cruising: The Lowrider Art Exhibit, which opened earlier this month and runs through June 8.

  • The exhibit celebrates the culture and artistic merits of the people who design and build lowrider cars.
  • The displays from more than two dozen artists include photography, vehicles and graffiti "and shows the deep influence of lowrider culture in Arizona," according to Vision Gallery.
  • "With each pinstripe and airbrush flourish a new story is told," Vision Gallery said of the lowriders that emerged as an art form and hobby in the Southwest in the 1950s.
