Skateboarders, Artists, and Musics Come Together to Do Good Things

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Jul2 2, 2016: As school cuts arts and physical education programs, a group of skateboarders, artists, musicians and companies are on a mission to join forces and invest their talents in the next generation. When you think of skateboarding, art may not be the first thing that comes to mind. You may think about the adrenaline, the excitement, etc. but many will first associate skateboarding with freedom of expression. However, to skaters, their style ad bag of tricks is their own individual art form.
There has always been an organic relationship between skateboarding and art. To the average person, a staircase might just be a way to get from one level to another. But, to a skater, this staircase is their canvas.
“Just as it requires patience, determination, and creativity to paint a portrait until it looks exactly how you want it to, or snapping a photo at just the right moment to get your shot, those virtues also apply to trying out a new trick and actually landing it successfully.” (ALEX GOMES, THE 20 BEST SKATEBOARDERS WHO ARE ALSO ARTISTS, GreenLabel.com)
With skateboarding continuing to grow in popularity, it’s tough not to pay attention. Grab any skateboard, flip it over, and you can see the art and thought that go into making a pro model graphics. Each and every board is unique. Then, there is the music. Pop in the latest skate video. The soundtrack of each video is carefully chosen to express each skater’s individuality. In every aspect, art, music and skateboard culture go hand in hand.
PUSH FOR GOOD is a movement to bring the skate, art & music community together to do good things for our local communities. It is a new organization established by long time skate industry couple Ulises & Toni Frallicciardi and Pro Skater and Musician Chuck Treece.
