Some pictures from NYC Bordo Bello

I took a ton, but here are a few.

Very happy to help out Elysia, current AIGA Colorado president and designer extraordinaire, as she brings Bordo Bello to New York for the first time! The exhibition will be up at the AIGA National Design Center Gallery until July 3rd.

Bordo Bello originated as an AIGA Colorado project in 2008 as a unique fundraising & arts project for the Denver community. Artists are ask to submit original skateboard designs and/or artwork to be sold at auction. All the proceeds form the auction go to supporting local arts mentorship program. I was lucky enough to also help at the super intense auction in Denver last year when they were auctioning over 300 decks and happened to move to New York when Elysia brought the exhibition to here!

The New York exhibition features over about 25 new decks created especially for the event and the rest of the exhibition were previous decks that were on-loan from the owners. Ten were for auction that night and 14 remain for sale on ebay up until Saturday.

Some of the NYC exhibition artists include: Debbie Millman, James Victorie, John Contino, Dana Tanamachi, Johnny Cupcakes, Louise Fili, Matteo Bologna, Will Bryant, Mig Reyes. Alex Bogusky, and Jessi Arrington, but there were many more! 

I had to take a picture with the James Victore board. I mean, I we’re practically best friends (I took a workshop with him in undergrad and he follows me on Twitter…).
