I went down to Livestock for the Smile On Your Brother show last night and snapped some photos. It’s up for two more nights – so you better catch it while you can. If you see a board you want, you can contact Annie or Mike here and place a bid. The auction closes near the end of October.
My good friend Bob Kronbauer has teamed up with Mike Giles and Annie Lam, founders of a Canadian charity called Contributor, to curate an art show called “Smile On Your Brother”. The show features 50 hand crafted, oak skateboards covered with art by artists from all over the world. The boards will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going towards a fund that will supply skateboards to Canadian kids who might not otherwise be able to afford them! The show opens here in Vancouver at Livestock (Gastown) on Monday, August 24th. Be there!
Artists include: Don Pendleton, Thomas Campbell, Andrew Pommier, Mike Perry, Julien Valee… you get the idea – the roster is no joke!
