Exclusive to the Everhart Museum, Sidewalk Surfing is a multi-disciplinary exhibition highlighting the multicultural roots of skateboarding in the United States, as well as the popular culture of the sport today. Skateboarding may have its roots on the West Coast in the ancient sport of surfing, found in Polynesia and ancient Peru, but it also developed on the East Coast in urban areas with its paved streets and roads during the early 20th century. After its boon in the 1960s, skateboarding as a pastime quickly spread around the country and today is often linked to youth culture and sport. The Everhart Museum will present artifacts and artwork that reflect the cultural importance of skateboarding, as well as design, technology, demographics, contemporary art, and social impact of the sport on society. Financial assistance for this exhibit is provided by Gertrude Hawk Chocolates, Inc.
