Skateboard Art Installation at Sonos Studio

Posted by

If you like the aesthetics of skateboards and even more so the concept that they can be displayed as pieces of fine art, then take a stroll down La Brea blvd to SONOS STUDIO. The speaker company’s LA show room is actually a museum space devoted to the sonic arts and one of its major highlights is actually a radical bathroom art installation composed entirely of GIRL [the company, not the gender] skateboards. As I understand it, the creative director of the space was at one time a professional skateboarder, which may be why SONOS STUDIO also has one of the coolest features of all time – a skateboard lending library!!! If you’re unfamiliar with the idea, it’s relatively simple. You arrive to the gallery, show them your ID, and then you can basically borrow a skateboard for free for a little bit. And since the skateboards in the library are all by Santa Cruz, they are works of art in themselves. I mean, not only are they the company that boasts Jim Phillips’ screaming hand, but they also have several decks inspired by The Simpsons — including one that mimics Bart’s board exactly. SONOS STUDIO is open to the public Wed-Sun from 12pm-6pm. Please check here for more details:

    The most basic reason for this is heating the zephyr from the red-hot ra, the dirt, the occurrence can also be convenient atmospheric fronts and more.
