Deckarama: Skateboard Art Exhibition
Fremont, California—March 31, 2004—The art of the skateboard deck. The skateboard subculture generates a brash-new-urban folk art with a history stemming from graphic design, underground art and appropriated commercial pop icons. The Louie-Meager Art Gallery is currently displaying a chronology of skateboard decks dating from the 1950’s to the present day. The era of the 1980’s is highlighted through the works and collection of Jim and Jimbo Phillips, as well as other collections representing various eras concerning different styles of art and illustration. Artist from around the nation and locally have also been chosen to display their art and skateboard decks, truly making this an admirable event. In addition, The Gallery will be hosting a reception on Wednesday, March 31st, 2004 from the hours of 6:30pm to 8:45pm. Jim and Jimbo Phillips will be highlighting the evening as guest speakers to discuss art, art techniques, skateboarding and its respective industry.

The exhibition is currently open for viewing Monday through Friday from 12pm to 3pm; Wednesday evening by appointment, and during most Smith Center events. Admission is Free.
The curators for the Deckarama Exhibition are Orlando Lacro and Louis Lima. They are both from the Bay Area being directly impacted by skateboarding at early ages. Their goal is to inform the general public about the art of the skateboard deck and to educate through an artistic perspective while opening the doors to a more professional side of the skateboarding industry.
