TAP, Southwest Rides Deck Design Series

Via Young Nation

Goal

To spread art into neighborhoods by commissioning local artists to create a series of skateboard and bicycle designs that will be sold out of a local shop

To spread art more deeply into Detroit neighborhoods, Young Nation will commission Detroit youth artists to create a series of skateboard and bicycle designs to be sold at the youth-run bicycle and skate shop Southwest Rides, powered by local partnering organization Urban Neighborhood Initiatives. After five designs are created through a workshop, the teen employees and staff will work with a local print shop to have them created on skateboards and bike placards. The artworks will then be sold to help sustain Young Nation and Southwest Rides.
