PONSHOP Studio is excited to announce the second annual “Art for Park” exhibit – a skateboard art show to benefit the Fredericksburg Skate Park Project. Up to fifty local and national artists have transformed the standard street skateboard deck into a work of art for the walls (or for wheels).

 “Art for Park” is a celebration of skateboard art and culture. What better way to rally our community than by having artists give their voice on what has, over the past sixty years, become an iconic symbol of youth culture, recreation and rebellion. The annual “Art for Park” exhibition series is a sustained effort to raise awareness of the importance of skateboarding as both an art form and recreation and to promote the Fredericksburg Skate Park Project. Initiated in 2013, this organization is dedicated to improving the existing skate spot at Brooks Park and promoting a safe and friendly public park for the entire community. Recently, the Fredericksburg Skate Park Project launched a community survey for the public to help in this process: http://bit.ly/fxBGprk

Five Dollars of every Artist Registration and 20% of all deck sales will benefit the park initiative.  Since 2018, the “Art for Park” art exhibition series has raised over $1,000 for the park initiative.

First Friday Opening Reception: Friday, April 5 (6pm-9pm) 

Exhibition Dates: April 5-28
