Art on Board is a community-centric organization focused on promoting positivity, creativity, and youth involvement through the action sports and arts communities. Originally started as an entrepreneurship class project at the University of Vermont, Art on Board is quickly blossoming into a nationally recognized, community-based youth development program. By combining the active, creative lifestyles intrinsic to both the action sports and arts cultures, with hands-on community involvement, Art on Board aims to inspire the next generation of creative leaders.
The Art on Board National Tour events are a continuation of the organization’s roots as a University of Vermont entrepreneurship class “Make a Difference” project. Each event is a way to bring the community together for a celebration of creativity and collaboration. The main attraction in each city is a silent auction for one-of-a-kind snowboards, hand created by collaborating artists. Events also feature participation from local culinary artists, live music and live art, along with prizes and giveaways from partnering brands.
Seattle is a two day event and will mark the second of four national tour stops; the first to include a live art auction. Event sponsor Drink Water will be showing their film Pathology Project on Friday night and All Together Skatepark will host kid’s skate clinics on Saturday. All proceeds to benefitThe Chill Foundation
Featured artists at this stop include: Aaron Blatt, Todd Francis, MAR, Kyler Martz, Chris McNally, Skip Class, Yung Lenox, and Brian Zager.
