Gnarly Native American art on skateboard decks

We had the pleasure of visiting the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This facility is very impressive and includes a variety of exhibits, meeting rooms, as well as a nice restaurant and gift shop.

The exhibit that really caught our eye and impressed us the most during the tour was entitled, “Pivot: Skateboard Deck Art.” Wow, these were so beautiful!

The range of designs and the vivid images/colors were outstanding. Everything from traditional Native American subjects, to The Muppets, The Simpsons, and everything in-between.

Since when did skateboard decks become such a fine canvas for artists? Throughout this post are photos depicting these spectacular works of art.

If you get a chance to be in New Mexico between now and February 2023, be sure to check out the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque and see this amazing exhibit of modern artistic craftsmanship. Peace!
