Lane Tech students in an Art 1 class with Ms. Chisholm designed and painted an image for a skateboard deck. These 10 students were then selected by popular vote to have their painted image printed on a real skateboard deck. These maple wood boards printed by BoardPusher.com, are standard popsicle-shaped decks with pre-drilled holes for wheels. They can become usable skateboards if desired or can hang on the wall as a fine art painting.
This particular piece was designed by Megan Gallian.
Artist's Statement: Nature is one of the most under appreciated and beautiful creations that our planet has. Each day, deforestation threatens the numerous animal habitats in the rainforest, leaving many species on the brink of extinction. My board displays the color of the rainforest and its beauty. It also reveals how nature is not man-made or manufactured and how it needs to be preserved in order for species to exist. My board brings to life the idea that humans need to realize their interdependence with plant and animal life for their own existence.
