Fast Forward: Skateboards & Paddles
Exhibit Opens December 6, 6-8pm / Runs December 6-Early January 2019
Paddles and skateboards move us forward, fast! Paddle blades and the lines of a skate deck are strikingly similar, and for good reason: they’re meant for speed, for slipping through air or water like a knife, and for cutting through resistance to get us where we need to go. The paddle is a traditional form of transportation, a perfectly engineered object that has been in continuous use on the Northwest Coast for millennia. The skate deck, its modern counterpart, has captivated the hearts of people across both rural and urban communities due to its economy, its freedom of movement, and its countercultural cache. This winter, we’ve invited our artists to adorn longboards, traditional skateboards and paddles in a huge group exhibition celebrating the power, speed, and creativity of these modes of transportation.
