Calling all skateboarders and fans of skate culture! Get stoked for Drexel University’s newest artistic exhibit.
Today, the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery in Drexel’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design will open Philly Radness: An Interactive Pop-Up Skatepark.
This mind-bending, site-specific installation was created by artist Eric Cade Schoenborn and pro-skateboarder Ed Selego. Using video from Philly-based skate videographer Chris Mulhern, projection-mapping, sound and motion responsive elements, Philly Radness will transform the gallery space into a sick skateboarding spot. Skaters are welcome to grab some air and immerse themselves in the exhibit.
Admission is free and open to the public from Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Bring your board if you want to get your grind on, or stand on the sidelines if you prefer. Either way, you won’t want to miss this.
To celebrate the opening, head to the gallery between 5 and 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 7 for a special reception and skateboarding demo. Philly Radness will be on display through Sunday, May 22.
