Deck Art 2019

Elementary School, Middle School, High School, College, and Adult age groups are welcome to participate in Downtown Rochester’s Ninth Annual Skateboard Art Competition & Exhibition – Deck Art 2019. Artists are asked to provide their unique work on a blank skateboard deck. Winning pieces will be picked in each category by a panel of judges, and prizes will be awarded. Deck Art 2019 is scheduled for May 9 & 10.

This year’s event is expected to include as many as 50 local merchants, transforming Deck Art 2019 into a Downtown Rochester crawl. Completed artwork will be artfully displayed throughout participating restaurants and businesses for onlookers to enjoy. Last year’s Deck Art 2018 drew over 500 artists from all over South Eastern Michigan. In the past, the states of Arizona, California, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, as well as Canada were represented.

The Rochester Downtown Development Authority (DDA) will host both the Thursday Night Kickoff on May 9, and Friday Night Crawl on May 10, both from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. The events will include unique artwork, musical entertainment and a kid’s activity. Specific event details will be available in the coming months.
