Skate Deck Art Show [SIV73] 

3/28/08: Margaritas, fake mustaches, 80s chic, skulls-a-plenty and skate deck art for a good cause. 

For three years now, Maven has been been teaming up with local artists and presenting different themed Skate Deck Art Benefits.  This year they raised money for the much needed redesign of the Burlington Skatepark. 

In March, funds were approved for a new skatepark as part of the Moran Redevelopment Project.  The money raised from Friday's silent auction of the skate decks will be used to pay for blueprints for a new and improved concrete park.

We talked to skateboarders and deck artists about their work and why they risk broken bones and fractured bits for the pleasure of skateboarding.  And hey, what is that bone jutting out of your neck Big Tim!?

You may recognize some local JDK artists such as Creative Director and Owner Michael Jager and Sachie Tani of the blog My Cat Goma.

"Viy" by Deep Soda off their album Pose Dead - Collected & Destroyed Vol. 2.
