Boardz & Arrowz Exhibition of Indigenous Artists

The Boardz & Arrowz exhibition, held at ArtSpace West, was something like no other. The feel of community was so strong, even randoms passing through were overwhelmed with love.



“This exhibition/fundraiser is a fine example of the power in our Native and SK8 communities. Even with all our individual struggles we stand up and unite to help each other.” - Jacob Meders


All artist’ boards were up for auction online and OVER $8,500 has been raised!!!! All proceeds have been donated to the GuVo Tohono O’odham Skate Park mission!


Huge thanks to everyone that came out to show their support for this Exhibition.
