Tonight: Bordo Bello is a sick 360!

Nothing says Colorado better than an artful skateboard deck: The perfect union of our predilections for outdoor sport and DIY thinking speaks visual volumes about living on the edge, being casually modern and bursting with pride for the state's magnificent climate. The folks at the Colorado branch of the American Institute of Graphic Arts know that better than anyone, and that's why the organization throws its Bordo Bello Skateboard Project fundraiser annually, featuring nearly 200 well-designed decks for silent auction, all in a single gallery, with prices starting at $30 to $50. Proceeds go to various AIGA Colorado's mentorship programs.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
