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.

Title: Same Love, Same Blood.
Artist's Statement: When this project was assigned, I instantly imagined doing something big, Chicago being the first thing that came to mind. My title for this piece is meaningful to me because as we all know Chicago is very diverse, and although we are all very different we all still love the same and we are united. The fists in the air resemble power, the many skin tones accentuate how we are so different but together we’re all the same.
