Bentonville Skate Park Project

At the start of the year, I set out to reinvent public places that I thought were in need of some creative investment. One target was the Bentonville Skate & BMX Park located at Memorial Park.  This park had seen better days and although utilized had become a sad representation of the creative class that I knew the skate scene as embodying. After a long process of working with the city I was able to get permission to graphically overhaul the park. Through the help and creativity of MARS advertising, BIKENWA, and the students from Bentonville High School's IGNITE program. We decided to a topographical map as the artwork on the park. It took two weeks and a small army of volunteers but we pulled it off and celebrated with a launch event that just crushed with yours truly djing and a massive trick contest. Peep some of the photos from before and after.
