REBELLION-   A Student Skateboard Art Exhibition!!!

 “REBELLION” a show title that was conceptualized by the students, was conceptualized in the spirit of teenage angst.  Angst through positive expression is our form of rebellion.  Punk Rock was our soundtrack and it all culminates in an exhibition that brings youth culture, fine art, skateboarding, and self expression to a gallery setting at Cal Surf. 

The stage will be set at the perfect venue for such an ambitious display of youth talent, iconic Twin Cities Skateshop Cal Surf. Cal Surf is one of the most respected skateboard retailers in Minnesota and plays host to the Cal Surf Gallery, a second floor project space and art gallery that has hosted multiple projects, and has continually been the gracious host of Rivard Art exhibitions.  Students from across the Twin Cities will be displaying their talents!

REBELLION will also host the incredible students of Pankalo Education Center. Pankalo Education Center is a K-8 school serving students with special needs in suburban St. Paul, MN. Experts at serving the unique needs of their students with Emotional Behavioral Disorders (EBD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Rivard was honored to have been giving that chance to bring skateboards and art to these incredible kids. “I wanted to give the students a real experience, and see them in a public show right along side their peers regardless of any challenges they may face in day to day life. Every child deserves the chance to be involved in something they will be proud of, and every parent deserves to see their child given opportunities that allow them to succeed”. 

Please join us in supporting the youth arts, skateboarding, and the most talented young adults in the Twin Cities on Thursday, May 24th, 2018 from 6pm-8:00pm at Cal Surf!
