Skate It or Hang It!? The Evolution of the Skateboard
June 16, 2012 to October 28, 2012
Skate It or Hang It!? was held at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) between June 16, 2012 to October 28, 2012. The exhibition, curated by W. Todd Vaught, examined the visual aspects of skateboarding, a sport important to contemporary youth culture since the 1970s, by presenting a broad range of styles, imagery, and visual expression in skateboard art. With a broad focus on skateboard graphics—in particular the styles and methods used to embellish skateboard decks—the exhibition appealed to a broad range of skateboarders, designers, artists and to Atlanta’s youth in general.
