New Boston Skatepark, Active/The Seventh Letter Art Show

New Boston Skatepark

Worship skateboards has been working closely with the Charles River Conservancy to raise money for the 2 million dollar skatepark slated for 2006 in Boston, Mass. In collaboration with Noah Stockman, they have designed a deck that will be sold to raise money for this project. As it turns out DVS shoe co. has also just signed on to release a shoe toward the same purpose.

EVENT INFO: All of the artists involved will be creating exclusive art for the show. 8 school desks and a teacher’s desk will be displayed, painted by the artists, as well as items normally found on the desks, and other school related paraphernalia. Taking inspiration from graffiti and skateboarding, the cultures that the participating artists come from, they will be taking objects that do not elicit any thought or attention beyond what is commanded by the daily routines in our lives, and forcing us to take notice. Both of these cultures take mundane elements of our daily life – handrails, freeway signs, pools, walls, etc- and through their respective forms of creative expression transform the purpose of the object and subsequently their place in our daily lives.

OBJECTIVE: The intention of the exhibition is not to sell pieces, as is the case with most art shows. This is purely for the love of art. If they so choose, the artists can sell or entertain offers for their art, but we will not take any commission off of any sale.
