Artist Description

The story of skateboarding is the story of America. It’s the tale of American manufacturers who made the boards, American kids who rode and tested them, and the American counter-culture that has developed in the last 60 years. This display is a glimpse of the skateboard experience beyond the coast of California, out into the Great Plains and across the majestic down-rolling mountains of America. The boards represented here, some acquired from the original owners; tell the story of the creation of an original all American sport. The spirit of innovation and the drive to conquer new frontiers has led to a wildly popular sport while remaining true to its distinct, independent roots. The viewer will be able to see fundamental developments throughout the decades as compared to the mass production models that were marketed to each generation. To complete our celebration of Americana, we offer some gimmicks, promotional models and a real nod to folk art with a display of homemade boards from the young and old do-it-yourselfers of the 1960’s. We hope you enjoy this roll down memory lane!
