Low & Slow

Noé Olivas

Limited installation July 2014–September 2015

Noé Olivas worked with dozens of people in the San Diego/Tijuana community to transform this 1967 delivery truck into a lowrider, which expresses his spirit of collaboration and commitment to bringing different groups of people together in art experiences.

Low & Slow is presented with support from The San Diego Foundation 2015 Creative Catalyst Fellowship.

What is this?

With the flick of a switch, this lowered truck – or “lowrider” – can dance up and down! The truck is a “rolling social sculpture” – an artwork and gallery that can move through the city to deliver art experiences. 

Who made this?

Noé Olivas was born in the Linda Vista neighborhood of San Diego and transforms everyday objects into works of art. This current project explores his interest in Mexican-American identity and his commitment to bringing people, cultures and objects together. Noé engaged dozens of people in the San Diego and Tijuana communities in the transformation of this 1966 delivery truck.
