Decked Out

Twenty years from now, we hope that the works in the Molten Brothers’ “DECK” shows are featured in an anthology exhibit like “Full Deck: A Short History of Skateboard Art.”

Organized by Bedford Gallery, located at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, California, the traveling show features around 300 skateboards (many on loan from ex-professional skaters and defunct skate companies) and acts as a nice little summary of skate culture from the 1960s to present day. The exhibit – which also showcases related accouterments, ranging from photographs to videos – debuted last summer at CA’s Bedford Gallery to a crowd of 6,000.
