Skateboard art auction for Jake’s Skate Park | PHOTOS – Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore, Maryland 2021-04-08 00:22:37 –

In 2011, five-year-old Jake Owen’s life was tragically shortened when his family’s car was attacked by another driver from behind. Federal Hill resident Cindy Conklin collaborates with the Waterfront Partnership to hold a fundraising auction to respect his legacy and ensure that the construction of the skatepark named after him is completed as planned. It was held. She contacted Baltimore and many artists across the country and arrived at over 50 custom-painted skateboard decks. There are different types of decks. 2 There is also an electronic triptych by one of Jake’s childhood friends, Reed, and California-based artist AJ Pyatak, and an autographed board by John Waters. The auction starts on Thursday, April 8th: bidingowl.com/WaterfrontPartnership
