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. 

 

IMBA World Summit

Abboriginal has been fortunate to work on the procuring, promotion, and production of the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) World Summit. The process had been years in the making and the event exceeded every expectation truly a huge week for Bentonville and Arkansas. There were 7 venues in flex and we had gear all over the region and ran the main production at the newly minted Record in downtown #Bentonville. We also finished up installing artist Leftyeyeball huge 3D sculpture at Pedaler's Pub that is bike themed! Here are a few snaps from the weekend including a video of some projection mapping we did at the Meteor Theater afterparty Saturday night. So many great things to replay for you all but I know attention spans are short so shoot me an email if you want more info about the weeks production.
