Skater Museums

California Heritage Museum Hosts ‘Skateboard: Evolution and Art'

— December 28, 2009 — Art & Design
The California Heritage Museum is hosting an exhibition for all the people who enjoy riding a skateboard… although I think all riders of snow, sand, sea and street will enjoy this show.

‘Skateboard: Evolution and Art’ is being held in Santa Monica, CA at the California Heritage Museum until May 30, 2010 and “examines the skateboard from 1950 to the present day.”

Multiple people lent a hand in making this possible including Z-boy Nathan Pratt, museum staff curator Michael Trotter, as well as Jeff Ho, Skip Engblom, Tony Alva, Stacey Peralta and Christian Hoisoi. 270 boards will be on display at the exhibition.

I would definitely recommend checking out the evolution of the skate board if you are in the California area; until then, check out other skating innovations we have here on Trend Hunter in the related articles below.
Trend Themes
1. Skateboard Art Exhibitions - The popularity of skateboard art exhibitions provides an opportunity for artists and galleries to explore the intersection of street culture and fine art, creating a new platform for disruptive innovation.
2. Skateboard Technology Advancements - The evolution of skateboards as exhibited in California highlights the potential for advanced materials, design and technology that can innovatively improve skateboard performance and safety.
3. Skateboard Culture Tourism - The growing interest in skateboard culture as seen in museums and exhibitions presents an opportunity for entrepreneurs to develop skateboard tours and theme parks that attract a new segment of adventure and action sports tourism.
Industry Implications
1. Art Galleries - Art galleries have a chance to reach a wider audience by featuring skateboard-inspired art and creating innovative multimedia presentations that merge street and gallery culture.
2. Sporting Goods Manufacturers - The innovations showcased in skateboard exhibitions can inspire new designs and materials to manufacture skateboards that are safer and more eco-friendly, providing a new competitive edge in the market.
3. Adventure Tourism - Adventure tourism operators can tap into the growing skateboard culture by offering customized tours that take visitors to iconic skateboard locations, skate parks, and museums, providing an authentic immersive experience and a new stream of revenue.
