The Art of Skateboarding

Posted by    |    November 15th, 2010 at 8:23 am

Last week I attended the 3d annual The Art of Skateboarding at South Side on Lamar with my 10 year-old son.

It was an evening of spectacular art, skateboarding, cocktails and fun benefiting Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.

Throughout the evening guests could bid on and purchase their favorite artist’s skateboard and limited edition Vans shoes.

175 skateboards were on display, designed by either a celebrity artist, clothing designer, graphic designer, or a local artist.

Our favorite board: The Snake

As a Mom, I love family-friendly events in Dallas like this that I can share with my son.

He loved the eclectic crowd, photo booth, colorful art and endless supply of Vitamin Water (sponsor).

It was great to show him that appreciating art doesn’t have to mean visiting a stuffy museum.

BIG kudos to my friend, Bri Crum, of Plan b PR for executing a fabulous event.
