It’s been a week and a half now but Bordo Bello went down really well this year. There was a big attendance and there were some really great boards in the show. It was great to see that some of the boards were going for some relatively high prices as well and it was great knowing that money was going to charity. We submitted 3 boards that worked as a tryptic. You can see them above. They were really nothing more than a simple homage to one of our favorite movies of all time (and one of the best movies of all time in our opinion). You can view images of all of the boards here and also take a peak at some pictures from the event here.
Well, I first have to apologize for this late post. My friend Elysia Syriac has worked terribly hard this year at putting together this event and it’s going to be a fantastic one at that. Bordo Bello is on tonight (Thursday) at Artwork Network. The exhibition starts at 6pm and goes until 10pm. This year guarantees to be a real showstopper. If you haven’t heard of the event before, it takes place right here (where I am) in Denver, Colorado and features some amazing artists and designers who have used the skateboard as their template. The boards are auctioned off in rounds at the event and the money goes to charity. It’s a great event for a great cause and definitely not something you should miss if you are here in Denver.
I am a big believer in posting the day of the event to bolster last minute attendance (we are minute by minute people when it comes to internet culture after all), so please don’t disappoint me and plan on being there. I will most likely be wearing my glasses with big bags under my eyes since I have been working day and night on projects for the Changethethought creative studio. So if you think you might know who I am, please don’t hesitate to say hello and strike up a conversation. Meeting new people in the community and gathering around really great art is what this is all about.
Changethethought has created a series of 3 boards that we are calling ’2001: A Skate Odyssey’ that will be auctioned off at this years event. I will post photos after the event. You can catch a little preview above. I will see you there.
