Skateboard: Evolution & Art In California

If you are in or traveling to California this month you will be pleased to hear that “Skateboard” has been extended through August 29th at the California Heritage Museum.

California Heritage Museum - Early Skateboards

The museum has pulled together more that 275 skateboards from some of the most impressive collections available. The exhibit houses skates, scooters and modern boards tracing the development of the technology through the decades.

California Heritage Museum - Dogtown

The California Heritage Museum is located in Santa Monica, the birthplace of contemporary skateboarding. It was here, in Dogtown that the sport of short shorts and banana boards matured into the physical and visual expression that is now cherished internationally.

    Dr. Cydd from the museum of time is showing some nice pieces in ned at the Artists’ Niche that feature the skateboard. His giant ‘flatirons’ sculpture of 200 or so irons is set up reflecting sunsets every night out front. Thx, LI2MO
