The ending of The Truly Rejected & MegaFauna Skate Deck Art Show is the beginning of an opportunity to save a life. First Friday, June 5th brings to close the amazing artwork from over 30 Colorado artists whom have contributed a broad range of artistically and uniquely styled skateboard decks in support of the youth support programs in Native and non-native communities. Too many times the community at large has overlooked the challenges in education and positive-affirmation activities for today’s youth, so we in the Colorado art community have taken opportunity with this skate deck show to expressly pronounce not only these challenges, but solutions with socially justifiable programs.
Over the past 4 weeks we have been blessed with the beginning of a new relationship and partner with Stronghold Society. Stronghold Society is a Colorado based non-profit dedicated to instilling hope to youth and supporting youth movements through Live Life Call To Action Campaigns. (http://www.strongholdsociety.org/ )
Partnering with Truly Rejected Magazine facilitated the partnership with Stronghold Society and a diverse group of artists which opened up limitless possibilities in both size, scale and scope of the artwork contributed for this consciously programmed event.
First Friday June 5th opens up a last call to the community to actively engage the artwork and cause supported by 30+ local artists. Denver’s Westword covered the opening event and the impressive list of artists who participated.
