Downtown Rochester is calling all Artists

Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and College students, as well as adult artists, are invited to participate in Downtown Rochester’s 11th Annual Skateboard Art Competition & Exhibition: Deck Art 2021. 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 is scheduled for May 13 & 14.
