‘Deck the Walls 2015’

My first skateboard was a two-and-a-half-foot-long, one-inch-thick massive beast. The deck was bright yellow with red wheels and had a magnificent fire-breathing dragon emblazoned across the bottom. After many scrapes and bruises attempting to ollie the monster, I limped away from skateboarding forever, but I never forgot about that awesome dragon. This is what the “Deck the Walls” event showcases — the art of the skateboard deck. This annual show displays painted and modified decks, curated from open submissions, by professional and amateur artists from around the area. This year’s event, in association with Revelry Boutique Gallery, is at VIA Studio, an advertising and digital design agency in NuLu.
