2024 Custom Culture Art Show

 Please visit the Anacapa Hall for the 2024 Custom Culture Art Show! Originally organized to showcase the work of Easyriders magazine artist David Mann after his passing, the Chopper Fest Art & Culture Show has evolved into an indoor, multimedia art exhibit focused on up-and-coming and established artists that work in the genre of motorcycle, hot rod, and low brow art.

Artists come from all over the country to pay tribute to the Norman Rockwell of the biker world, and to meet like-minded artists, industry professionals, and art patrons looking for something "off the beaten path". Artists are encouraged to create David Mann tribute art, be on-site to promote their art, and do some "live painting". Artwork is displayed on fencing and tables supplied by Chopper Fest.
