Photos: Awesome skateboard art on deck for Saturday's 5th annual Bordo Bello

"There's something people just love about the skateboard as a free and expressive canvas," says American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Colorado president Elysia Sryiac, surveying more than 300 decks submitted for Saturday's 5th annual Bordo Bello art show and auction at Redline Gallery. "This will be our largest show to date, with contributions from an amazing amount of really great local talent as well as a lot of decks that came in nationally that look really great, and I never cease to be surprised and amazed at how unique and creative each and every artist's approach to the skateboard can be."
