GardenSK8 has become a home to many urban artists from New York, New Jersey, California and abroad. The neutrality of GardenSK8 lends itself to amazing collaborations which would have otherwise never taken place. Everyone realizes coming into it that their art remain until the next show or collaboration is scheduled. NO art is covered or buffed as a result of street politics. The art is dynamic and changing all the time which lends itself as the backdrop to countless photography and filming sessions for the skatepark. It is impossible to take a picture at GardenSK8 without having a piece in the picture. Artists are challenged with themes pushing their creativity to different levels. We are planning our first Art Show which will feature everything from auctions, live paintings and more.
On behalf of all of us at GardenSK8 we would like to thank all of the artists for their time spent making this place a house of art.
