2019 Surfboard Art Project in support of ARTREACH San Diego
AUCTION CLOSED…YOU CAN STILL VIEW THE SURFBOARDS: HERE’S THE LINK.
Thank you to all who created a board, and all who bid on these amazing creations.
In honor of the 35th anniversary of Mission Federal ArtWalk, we celebrated our oceans and the beachy surfing culture that are so emblematic of San Diego. Thanks to our partners, Rerip, who provided all the upcycled surfboards, 35 artists have transformed surfboards into original artwork. Painting, mosaic and woodwork were some of the mediums that were represented in this show and sale of surfboard art. Rerip’s unique mission of keeping surfboards out of landfills makes the idea of turning boards into works of art something we can all be proud of.
The boards were displayed during Mission Federal ArtWalk at the Piazza della Famiglia (India and Date Streets) and will be available via an online auction. The majority of the proceeds for the sale of these unique art pieces directly benefit ArtReach, our not-for-profit art education partner that delivers art workshops at Title One Schools throughout the County.
