The Dark Slide 2015 Skateboard Art Exhibition was held at Dubuque Area Arts Collective at 902 Main St. This years event showed off nearly 100 decks from local, national, and international artists on my favorite medium, a skateboard deck.
The Skate Guitar project is the brainchild of three friends from Argentina who transform beat up skateboard decks into one-of-a-kind guitars, promoting their combined passions of recycling, rock ‘n’ roll and skateboarding.
