So plans are shaping up for the MDISA summer fundraiser DeckedOut on MDI!. We gave out 80 blank decks to local artists and asked them to do whatever they wanted to them…..they’re now coming back to us in the form of cool and divergent art, ready for show and auction this July and August! Here are the details:


DeckedOut on MDI!: MDISA Skateboard Deck Art Show and Auction Events
Show: July 10-Aug 10, 2010
at various locations across MDI, including Reel Pizza, Cadillac Mtn Sports, Randonee Cafe, Jesup Library, Common Good Cafe, Morning Glory Bakery, and more…..

including children’s mini-deck art project,
On-Line Auction: Aug 1-10

We’re gettting some really cool art, boards that will be rideable as well looking great on your wall, or wherever. Join us on July 14, from 4-7 pm and Jesep Memorial Library in Bar Harbor for the opening reception (it’s a family event, bring the small kids and they can decorate their own mini skatedeck, plus enjoy some refreshments), then travel around MDI and check it all out. More info to come later!
