Oasis Skateboard Factory | The Youth Are Revolting 2016
This March, the Gladstone Hotel will host a retro mini 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 YOUTH ARE REVOLTING 2016, young emerging student designers collaborated with high-profile professional artists to develop a series of skateboards based on the theme of teen stereotypes and rebellion.
Come meet all the artists and bid on one-of-a-kind art skateboards at our Closing Party & Silent Auction on Friday March 11 from 7 to 10PM. This is the culmination of a great mentorship program and an opportunity provided by sponsors Roarockit Skateboard Company (who donated wood and materials) to raise money to ensure Oasis Skateboard Factory has enriched resources to help youth develop transferable creative and entrepreneurial skills into the future.
