Mouthwatering & socially-engaged! Wayne THIEBAUD’s skateboard art collection is a bittersweet nostalgia for Americana culture.

In tandem with the opening of the Fondation Beyeler’s Wayne Thiebaud retrospective exhibition in 2023, THE SKATEROOM has created a collection of limited edition skateboard artworks, marking our third collaboration with the Fondation Beyeler (See: Cindy SHERMAN, Andy WARHOL). The collection features: Tomato Bowl (solo); Fruits, Vegetables and Melons (solo); Jolly Cones (diptych); Three Cones (triptych). These four pieces, each released in a limited run of 100, are celebrations of Thiebaud’s outstanding oeuvre, and exemplify the artist’s mouthwatering, yet somehow bittersweet, depictions of retro Americana confectionery.

It reaches 400 youth per year, and CJF needs support to double this impact in 2023. This includes edu-skate programming across Peru, Jamaica, & Morocco, expansion of the Edu Skate Worldwide Network (ESWN), and Planting Seeds Apprenticeship.
