Museum Day

Last Sunday my husband and I had a museum day. Earlier that week we saw a news segment that was talking about a new exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum. The exhibit that immediately sparked my husband's interest, The High Art of Riding Low: Ranflas, Coraz√≥n E Inspiraci√≥n. This new exhibit explores the world of the Low Rider and the inspiration on artist.  We made our way to the Miracle Mile in search of some Low Riders. 

Upon our arrival we were greeted by two beautiful cars but we still had to go up three floors to start the exploration. It was three levels of beautiful cars that took your breathe away.  Let me just say even if you are not a car aficionado, you should visit this museum. The museum is filled with beautiful historic cars from every possible era. It's amazing to see how far the automobile has come and how beautiful a car can be. 

Our visit ended on the first floor, at the exhibit we were initially there for. The exhibit was smaller than I expected but I really enjoyed it. The artwork on these cars is amazing, definitely worth a visit. In addition to the cars, they had artwork from artist that have been inspired by the Low Rider. At the end of our visit we left with the desire of owning classic car that we can drive around on Sundays, but we settled for a '67 Impala model car that we bought at the gift shop.
