Empowering at-risk youth through education and skateboarding

Skateistan x James Rosenquist

With James ROSENQUIST
Description

The Skateroom’s collaboration with the James Rosenquist Foundation sees F-111  reproduced on a series of four limited editions, as part of The Skateroom’s ‘Art for Social Impact’ movement, to generate support for Skateistan – an award-winning international non-profit organization which empowers children through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. 

 

“We are excited to collaborate with The Skateroom to benefit Skateistan and the James Rosenquist Foundation,” remarks Mimi Thompson Rosenquist. ”Jim felt strongly about supporting artists, children’s health and educational opportunity, and would be thrilled to see his images on skateboards that support building new schools and providing recreational activities to children in need.”

 

These editions contribute to The Skateroom’s annual pledge of $100,000 towards Skateistan’s activities in Cambodia, South Africa and Afghanistan.
