As a former skateboarder – as well as a lifelong wearer of Vans – I am a sucker for any combination of boards and art. Hence, I am hoping to check out a show at Bigfoot Bike & Skate, 2481 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., on Friday, Sept. 27.

The event lasts from 5 to 10 p.m. and is part of Bay View Gallery Night. It features 30 unique, one-of-a-kind longboard skateboard decks created by local artists.

Artists include store owner Brian Curtiss, Jenny Anderson, Tim Chiapetta, Jerod Freitag, Abbey Manalli, Uncle Fun and more.

"All items will be for sale as individual decks or as complete ready-to-ride skateboards," says Curtiss.

The display will remain up thru Saturday, Oct. 5.
