Generation Grind – A Skateboard Art Show
This April, 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.
The Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) is an award winning high school program where at-risk youth earn credits by running a design and skateboard graphic business. For Generation Grind students collaborated with high profile artists to develop a series of boards based on their experiences as youth in the city.
Cops, graffiti, squeegee kids, tattoos and all the things that matter to teenagers in Toronto are channeled through the work of professional artists such as:
Ryan Wilding & Peter Queckenstedt
