Video: Skaters and Makers by SMMoA's Park Studio
Park Studio: Skaters and Makers from Santa Monica Museum of Art on Vimeo.
Park Studio is a program of the Santa Monica Museum of Art which enables the youth to interact with contemporary artists. Their exhibit Skaters and Makers shows us how 22 handmade modular skate ramp units can make a portable skate park. Basic architectural lines and skateboarding history influence every piece of the collection. Various combinations of the pieces offer skaters endless configurations of ramps and boxes to play on. Much respect to designer Gil Le Bon Delapointe, craftsman Dante Cacace, and architect François Perrin for coming together on this inspiring project.
