Stoked on Spring 2012 will exhibit contemporary artwork by established and emerging artists, and design collaborations between Stoked youth and professional artists, art directors, and creative directors on skateboard decks built by youth in the Stoked Plus: Skateboard Build after-school program. The contemporary art and collaborative skate decks will be exhibited for silent auction bidding exclusively at the event. Stoked on Spring will also feature an online auction of unique items and experiences that will be open for bidding to the public. All funds generated by the on-site silent auction, online auction, ticket sales, and donations made at the event will directly support Stoked’s after-school Stoked Plus: Skateboard Build program in New York City, which teaches youth how to build their own skateboards from scratch without using power tools and life skills such as time management, project planning, and teamwork, earning them high school credit.
