Everyone knows we are big skate fans over here, and last week we had the chance to check out the opening of a great new exhibit here in New York. AIGA Colorado hosts an annual show featuring custom boards designed by an incredible collection of artists and influenced by the colorful Colorado lifestyle, and this year they decided to bring tit to New York City. Bordo Bello was started in 2008 to benefit the local AIGA‘s mentorship chapter and has flourish each year as it grows.
This exhibit at the AIGA National Design Center is a unique collection of skateboards from previous “Bordo Bello” events, as well as brand new artwork available for purchase during an opening reception. Artists include Jessi Arrington, Alex Bogusky, Matteo Bologna, Will Bryant, John Contino, Johnny Cupcakes, Louise Fili, Debbie Millman, Mig Reyes, Dana Tanamachi, James Victore and more.
If you’re in New York make sure to check out the incredible selection of artists and work. The show is on display at the AIGA National Design Center through July 2, 2013.
