Reclaimed, artist-designed skate decks rolled into MegaFauna last Saturday for the Skate Deck Art Show, organized by the RiNo apparel store with Truly Rejected magazine to benefit the Stronghold Society, an organization dedicated to building skateparks on reservations in South Dakota. More than thirty artists took part, and proceeds from board and raffle-ticket sales helped Stronghold reach its goal. Here’s a look at the boards and the people of the Skate Deck Art Show, courtesy of photographer Ken Hamblin.
