SI: Wall Street Journal covered Crystal Bridges Museum's "State of the Art" and had nice words for Las Vegas artist Justin Favela and his "Lowrider Piñata". WSJ writes:
It's a car, it's a piñata, it's a monumental sculpture measuring nearly 20-feet-long and created by Justin Favela of Las Vegas. "Lowrider Piñata" is a souped-up, chromed-up, green-candy-colored 1964 Chevy Impala—made of tissue paper, cardboard and glue—that taps into Mr. Favela's Mexican-American heritage. But with "Lowrider Piñata," which hangs from a gallery ceiling, the artist also wants to entertain. "I love when people get a good laugh out of the work," Mr. Favela says in his statement.
