Group Art Exhibit Showcasing Skateboard Art to Benefit Cuba Skate
Art Whino teams up with Cuba Skate to raise awareness and funds for the nonprofit initiative based out of Washington, D.C.

Using the skateboard as medium for the artwork, Art Whino will curate a large group show in which proceeds of the sales go to Cuba Skate and help this organization make a positive change in the lives of many. Along with the art show there will be musical performances as well as open skate throughout the evening.

About Cuba Skate
Cuba Skate started in 2010, with the aim to support and grow the Cuban skateboarding community by providing access to skateboarding equipment that is otherwise unavailable on the island. In doing so, Cuba Skate hopes to foster a constructive environment for Cuban youth that will have a positive impact on the greater community. Cuba Skate expands the future for these skaters by creating a chance to continue skateboarding, and developing, year round.
