2018 SKATEBOARD ART SHOW & AUCTION | Boards of Education

 

Exhibition Dates/Times: Wednesday April 4th to Thursday 12th, 2018, 12:00pm-5:00pm daily
Opening Reception: Thursday April 12th, 2018, 7:00pm-10:00pm

April 4 to 12, the Gladstone Hotel will host a skateboard exhibit and
silent auction of rolling artworks by high school students and local
artists in support of the Oasis Skateboard Factory’s innovative school
programming.
The Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) is an award winning high school
program where at-risk youth earn credits and graduate by running a
skateboard design business. For the MIS-EDUCATION – themed show,
young emerging student designers collaborated with high-profile
professional artists to develop a series of skateboards based on the
theme of well… education!
Come and meet the artists and students and bid on one-of-a-kind art
skateboards at our Art Show and Auction on Thursday April 12 from
7 to 10 PM. This is the culmination of a great mentorship program and
an opportunity provided by sponsors Roarockit Skateboard Company
(who donated the Canadian maple) to raise money to ensure Oasis
Skateboard Factory has enriched resources to help youth develop
transferable creative and entrepreneurial skills into the future.
Oasis Skateboard Factory is a Toronto District School Board alternative
high school entrepreneurial design program where at-risk youth (age 16
to 21) earn credits and graduate by building skateboards and running
a design business.
