This Saturday, the sunken court (“The Pit”) of Sara D. Roosevelt Park is hosting a full day of programming dedicated to art, song, and skateboards. Anti Hero Skateboards, that is. The event features custom graphics by Brooklyn-based artist and designer Dennis McNett (aka Wolfbat). In total, there are 22 graphics spread across boards and carved blocks, some of which are limited edition and all for sale.
McNett will also lead a workshop providing kids under 17 the opportunity to trick out blank decks. All materials are provided free of charge, thanks in part to the Vans corporate sponsorship. As for live music – a four-hour open jam, as well as performances by punkers Who Axed You, Yuppicide, and Dead Serious are planned. Anti Hero skaters Julien Stranger and Andrew Allen will cameo.
Reception for the opening is planned afterward (6pm – 9pm) at the Lodge Gallery across the street at 131 Chrystie.
