Surfboard Art Auction for ArtReach

Support Art in Schools with our 2019 Surfboard Art Project

In support of ARTREACH San Diego

In honor of the 35th anniversary of Mission Federal ArtWalk, we are celebrating our oceans and the beachy surfing culture that are so emblematic of San Diego.  Thanks to our partners, Rerip, who are providing all the upcycled surfboards, more than 25 artists are transforming surfboards into original artwork.  Painting, mosaic and woodwork are some of the mediums that will 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 will be displayed during Mission Federal ArtWalk at the Piazza della Famiglia (India and Date Streets) and will be available via a silent auction.  The majority of the proceeds for the sale of these unique art pieces will directly benefit ArtReach, our not-for-profit art education partner that delivers art workshops at Title One Schools throughout the County.  You can support ArtReach and take home a stunning piece of art.

As the boards are completed, we’ll post photos to an online auction so that you can bid on them even if you cannot attend the event, and you can check on your bid throughout the weekend–but we hope you’ll come and see them in person!  Then during the festival, you will be able to bid by registering for a bid number at the Piazza della Famiglia.

We are indebted to Rerip for their generous support of this project.  Visit with their team at Mission Fed ArtWalk, and learn more about their good work in the community.
