Skate Deck Art Show at Slingluff Gallery

GW04found via club mumble. I know these deck art shows are kind of played out a bit but when done right it is pretty awesome. anyways. info from club mumble below:

Saturday night in Philadelphia, stop Slingluff for the third installment of Good Wood, a silent auction of art on skate decks to benefit Stay True. The show features over 15 different artists, including Leo Espinosa, Mike Burdick and Don Kilpatrick plus a special installation piece by AJ Fosik. It all goes down at 6pm at the Slingluff Gallery, 11 W. Girard Ave in scenic Fishtown. Beer+art+benefit=no brainer so brave the coming rain and check out what’s good.

STAY TRUE is a non-profit organization based in Philadelphia dedicated to offering under-privileged, at-risk youth the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to become powerful agents of social/political change in their communities.

  1. So weird, you started off putting down the art show then you are put off by skaters not talking about the show. Good vibes make good times. An image for this post may also draw more readers.

  2. i have failed by my new years resolution and that is to think more before speaking. i back this skate deck art show. i didnt mean for it to sound like i was hating. i wouldnt have posted other wise.

  3. I appreciate the help with promotion either way Jim! Also, appreciate the concern nugget.

    I’ve stated in the past the show is by no means a new idea, but i do believe a bit of a different take on skate deck exhibitions.

    You can link where people may view images from the show and can be linked to the online auction.


  4. I gotta get up there and see the show before it comes down! Finn, see the hover board? You didn’t make that did you? Sweet!!!
