“Take life’s trials and turn them into tricks.” -Anonymous
The challenge was simple: take a blank skate deck and turn it into art. The results are simply amazing. With more than 95 decks and over 80 participating artists, September’s exhibit is a uniquely engaging look into the Salt Lake arts community.
Join us on Friday, September 14th for our opening reception from 6-9pm. During this event, we invite the public to vote on their favorite decks, and the top-voted pieces will be named the winners of this year’s Skate Deck Challenge. Winning artists will receive prizes, and will be announced the next day on the main stage of the Urban Arts Festival.
This show will hang September 4th through September 30th, with an opening reception on September 14th from 6-9pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
