Stacks on Decks
August 27, 2011
Halogen Nosedive, Men Behind the Sun, and Blackbird proudly present for your sensory overload and entertainment: Over 30 Nashville artists including Seth Reynolds, Abigale Coppage, Dustin Dirt, and Jeff Bertrand, graffiti crews Workforce Rebellion and 42, Nashville art collective The Definitive Collection, DJ’s, Hip-Hop, and debauchery. Stacks on Decks is an art party of over 50 completely original, infinitely unique skate decks in Blackbird’s Main Gallery. These decks will be available for purchase, prices ranging from $180 – $300. For an additional fee, Halogen Nosedive offers the flashy skater the option of adding trucks and wheels to make your art fully ride-worthy. Local painter Philip Saxby’s surrealist-meets-realist collection of acrylic paintings, Heroine Heroes, will be showcased in the Lower Gallery, in addition to Saxby’s collection of 11 skate decks in the Main Gallery.
The whole shebang goes down on Saturday, August 27th at 9:00pm. Workforce Rebellion and 42 bring live painting to the mix via a 30+ foot temporary wall built for the event, which, afterwards, will break down into smaller canvases available for purchase. Live music kicks off at 9pm boasts performances by DJ’s Mike Vulcan, Dunwich Horror, and Ugly Lovely and local hip-hop artists Bobby Exodus, Capo, and Last of the Horsemen.
