Exhibition explores ‘Pachucos y Sirenas’


Zoot suits, lowriders and calaveras inspire the works of old- and new-school artists sharing an affinity with Mexican-American culture in the 1930s and 1940s in Museo de las Americas’ exhibition “Pachucos y Sirenas.”

The show highlights the Pachuco subculture associated with flamboyant fashion and stylized language, known as Caló, used to show cultural pride. The exhibit features art and artifacts, including a full-size lowrider piñata and portraits of the National Chicano Dance Theater.

The museum is open from 12-5PM, Tuesday through Saturday, and general admission is $5 per person. The show runs through May 26.
