artisan sports

Skateboarding is a true art form. It  represents the tension between practice and art that becomes a balanced freedom.  I never learned how to skateboard, but I always admired it as a sport.  Many people become very angry at skateboarding, and that is another reason why I think it is so artistic.  Strong visceral responses identify good art.  I judge a neighborhood by the quality of it's skatepark.  

PS.  Please protect your greatest asset.  Always wear a helmet when riding! Now, as I say in my Art-o-Mat column, "Find a skateboard. Lose a collar!"
