MAKE Skateboards is a new exhibition and pop-up skateboard shop open this weekend only, which features the ever hip, design-meets-half-pipe skateboard as a canvas for contemporary artists including Amy Granat, Jacob KassayJoyce Pensato, Peter Saul, Erik Parker,  and many others.  MAKE Skateboards, organized by Scott Ogden and Jonathan Lavoie, first showed this fall at I-20 Gallery in New York and made its way from Chelsea to St. Louis for 3 days only.  In addition to the artist-designed boards for sale will be vintage clothing from Portia & Manny of New York City and art from adult artists with developmental disabilities at the Brooklyn League Education and Treatment Center’s Land Gallery.

And, your second reason (if you even needed it), White Flag Projects is hosting a FREE 18+ Halloween Eve Dance Party on Sunday featuring video projections and music from DJs Jeremy Kannapell and Josh Levi. If you have not been before, know that space is plentiful, parking is on the street, masks are encouraged and doors are at 9!
