Urban Interventions: Skate Art at the Museum

Video Title
Urban Interventions: Skate Art at the Museum
Description
In August of 2015, the Anchorage Museum and Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center hosted a program to provide Anchorage-area teenagers with an opportunity for creative, athletic expression through skateboarding. Led by New Yok-based activist Jim Murphy (Lenni Lenape), students received a skateboard kit and designed decks inspired by Alaska Native objects from the Smithsonian collections in the Living Our Cultures exhibition and from the Anchorage Museum collections. They also learned how to assemble the kit parts and joined in a public skate jam with their new skateboard.
