adidas Skateboarding will make history next month as it partners with BEYOND THE STREETS (BTS) to resurrect one of the most iconic and historically relevant destinations in skateboarding history—the Venice Pavilion. With site-specific installations curated by Los Angeles graffiti legend RISK, the three-stripes brand will reveal a fully skateable installation of the sacred site known as one of the original birthplaces of street style skateboarding as well as the introducer of East Coast "subway style" graffiti to the western edge of the country.
Originally built in 1961 as an amphitheater, the Pavilion was later reclaimed as a haven for graffiti artists and skateboarders to co-exist and cultivate their crafts for decades. The area hit its glory days in the 1980s and 1990s, as an abundance of now-legendary artists and skaters flocked to the Pavilion, also known as the "Venice Pit", to make their names and reputations that proceed them today.
The one-of-a-kind, touring BTS exhibition debuts in Los Angeles on May 5, 2018 and will run through July 6, 2018. BTS will then head to New York City with more global locations to be announced.
