The Department of Art and Design is pleased to present an exhibition of work by skateboarding legend, Christian Hosoi.
How hard do you have to fall and hit rock bottom before you make the decision to stop doing whatever it is that is satisfying you on the outside, but killing you on the inside? Christian Hosoi, an All-American professional skateboarder, lived by the creed, “Skate and Destroy.” While he found his calling in skating at an early age, he also found himself in the midst of destruction.
Hosoi was the subject of an 2006 documentary film Rising Son – The Legend of Skateboarder Christian Hosoi, that detailed his initial success as a pro Vans skateboarder, drug addiction, and conversion to Christianity.
Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 17, 6:00-8:00pm
