DeKALB – For Ariel Ries, the connection between skateboards and art is natural.
“Since the beginning of skateboard time, the art has been such a big influence. People will always remember the first graphic on their board,” said Ries, owner of Smalltown Skate Shop. “Skateboarding itself is an artistic expression. A lot of artists are skateboarders, and vice-versa.”
What started as a skateboard-themed art show six years ago has grown into the annual Skateboard-Inspired Art Show, which brings dozens of artists and hundreds of visitors on the last Thursday of February to the shop at 229 E. Lincoln Highway in downtown DeKalb.
