skateboard art show toronto

Toronto's getting a huge skateboard art show

Skateboard decks make great canvases. Toronto's Collectif NUDE knows that so it's hosting a massive art show featuring more than 100 skateboard decks for one week only.

Bare Decks opens this Sunday, Oct. 16 at Free on Claremont Street near Trinity Bellwoods Park. It'll feature skateboard decks dressed up by local and internationally based artists, athletes and musicians. But you'll have to move quickly if you want to check them out.

The show will stay open for one week (until Oct. 22) and afterwards, Collectif NUDE will sell all of the decks at an online auction. Proceeds will go towards the Canadian Cancer Society for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
