RIDES OF PASSAGE SNOWBOARD ART EXHIBIT

Curated by Bruce Bart and Curse Mackey, and co-sponsored by BURTON SNOWBOARDS, this exhibit featured 117 BURTON Snowboards painted, mangled, mauled, carved, made pretty, or pretty dangerous by some of the world's finest tattooists, visionary artists, graffiti artists, and illustrators.

The exhibit is currently on a World Tour.  It debuted as part of Bart and Mackey's Woodstock Tattoo & Body Arts Festival in Sept. 2004 and had enormously successful openings in New York City at Milk Gallery, and Los Angeles at La Lu De Jesus Gallery.

It also had three showings in Austria as part of the BURTON SNOWBOARDS World Tour.  The openings were a blast with many of the artists, celebrities, press, as well as some of the top pro snowboard riders in the world in attendance.  The exhibit travels to Tokyo in the fall of 2005 insuring its place as one of the dominating art exhibits in recent years and it is also the largest exhibit of fine art works by tattoo artists ever assembled.
