Skate X Recreate - Skateboarding combined with Art.

Skate X Recreate - Skateboarding combined with Art.

One of the really great parts of my job is that I often get the opportunity to meet some very cool people with amazing talents and creative ideas. Last night I met Lou Fermonte, skateboarder/artist who combines his passion of skateboarding with his passion for art by creating unique, hand panted hearts from used skateboards.  Lou is one of the featured artists that will be showcasing his artwork at the Skate X Recreate event kicking off on Friday, July 19 at Morey's Piers [artBOX].  David Macomber and Lynn Weiler are two more featured artists displaying their artwork during the week long art exhibition from July 19 - 25. The love of skateboarding with a passion for creating art from reusable material is the theme for this event. Extremely fitting for [artBOX], an artist village created from 11 reused and repurposed shipping containers. 

I highly recommend checking out the event on Friday night from 7-10PM.  And I am not just saying that because I work here!  Enjoy live music, meet the artists and watch skate demos by Skate/AC.  For more information on the event click here.
