Board of Art Show: AUGUST 2nd

Board of Art

I was unaware, but maybe you’ve heard of this before… Apparently, there is some sort of long standing history of skateboarding in Portland Oregon. Who knew? Someone should commemorate that. Besides building 19 new skateparks, the City of Portland is sponsoring an exhibit called Board of Art: A Historical Perspective of Stumptown Skate on August 2nd from 5:00-8:00pm at City Hall (1221 SW 4th). There will even be a half pipe set up in front of city hall. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a city’s top brass embrace skateboarding so much. Thanks Comissioner Sam! Now why wasn’t I invited to be artsy with my peers? Oh wait. I was, and I dropped the ball. Nice one. [Graphic: Bettina McEntyre]

    so who’s going to be “allowed” to skate the pipe?

  3. Shouts out to Bettina for the dope art! ‘sup dawg?

  4. Rich, did you just call her a bitch?

    Dunno anything about the ramp, but I’m guessing anyone will be allowed to skate. The event is free and open to the public, plus no mention of a demo so… check out the Commissioner Sam link.

  5. I think I am supposed to be working a zine table at this event…
