BordoBello, an AIGAColorado skateboard design charity auction, will be auctioning off skateboard decks designed by over 200 local artists and designers, on the evening of Friday, December 11, 2009, benefiting two youth-focused design and arts charities, VSA Arts of Colorado’s Access Gallery & Youth Design.
This is a chance to recognize Denver’s community of artists and designers, and get people together to encourage the youth to follow their dreams while giving them the tools and support necessary to explore their interests in becoming designers. BordoBello has organized mentorship teams between established local designers, artists and students from high schools and colleges in the Colorado area who are eager to learn about design. The boards created by these by these partnerships will be included in the auction.
The fund raiser will take place at Andeken Gallery. The doors will open at 6 p.m., and the live auction will begin at 8:30 p.m. Tickets, which can be purchased at the BordoBello website, will be $15 ahead of time and $20 at the door. All boards being auctioned off will start at $25. All ticket holders will be entered to win a collection of door prizes donated by local restaurants and shops around Denver. This evening will be filled with stimulating entertainment including live graffiti by West High School Mural Club, live music from Artist Roster and a live skateboarding demo from the BC Surf & Sport Colorado Skate Team. Drinks will be provided by Amp Energy Drinks, and beers will be $2.
