Everhart Museum Seeks Skateboard Designs For Fall Exhibit

The Everhart Museum, an arts partner of Lackawanna County, is seeking creative artworks from area students and residents centered on the theme of “Sidewalk Surfing: The Arts & Culture of Skateboarding.”

This display will be part of The Everhart’s “Decked Out” community art exhibit, which will be in Gallery One from August 2 to December 30.

Open to all individuals in Northeastern Pennsylvania, the design should illustrate a skateboard of the artist’s dreams. Originality is the focal point of this competition.

The design work must be done in the following media: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, or mixed media (2D). No videos, 3-D work, or installation pieces will be accepted. The dimensions must be no greater than 16” x 20” and must be unframed and unmatted. Reproductions will not be accepted, and the works will not be sold.

An entry form/ID tag must be attached to the reverse side of each original piece. All pieces must be submitted to The Everhart Museum office by 4 PM on Saturday, June 1.

A panel of museum staff and community partners will judge the show and select the artwork for display.
