Press release from PUSH Gallery:
Foundeviation: an art show/fundraiser for skateable public art featuring new works by Alex Irvine. Reception Friday, August 3 from 7-10pm. Refreshments graciously provided by Pabst Blue Ribbon.
A few words from the artist:
This art show is a fundraiser / proposal to build a sideways “Guastavino dome”—a cradle, in skatepark terms, made of tile—at the Foundation skateable sculpture park in the River Arts District. Imagine the roof of the basilica downtown on its side so you could skate it. The show features graphics and ceramics by Alex Irvine that help explain the proposed construction and hopefully raise some money to fund the project. There will also be opportunity for public input on this project and what the future of the skatepark could look like.
