7ply: The Art of Skateboarding is an art exhibition that explores the relationship between the worlds of art and skateboarding. It will examine the powerful impact skateboarding has on the life of youth who grow up on the streets or on their boards. “7ply” refers to the seven layers of wood that comprises a skateboard, while providing an expression of a skater’s life struggles, overcoming them on the board, and then emoting their stories through art.
This exhibition features the work of 50+ accomplished artists from around the world. Their stories are told through the lens of skateboarding and signature decks that each has created especially for this show. Prepare to be inspired!
