New Museum announces limited edition skateboard in the shape of the museum's iconic building
The Chapman x New Museum Skateboard is available for purchase for $125 in store or at newmuseumstore.org.
NEW YORK, NY.- From prohibition comes invention. When skaters are kicked off one street, they find another. Artists like Larry Clark, Harmony Korine, Ari Marcopoulos, and Ed Templeton have looked to skate culture—a culture where the body’s action propels it forward at breakneck speeds and where the city becomes a concrete labyrinth reduced to its simplest geometry—as a source of inspiration. It attracts the new, and the young gravitate toward its unrelenting momentum, creating a space for innovation where convention breaks on the pavement.

Inspired by a 2012 New Museum Store window installation by Canyon Castator and Richard Duff, the New Museum Store is proud to contribute to the continually expanding intersection of art and skate culture with the release of a limited-edition skate deck in the shape of the New Museum’s iconic building on the Bowery designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning firm SANAA. In collaboration with Chapman Skateboards, one of the premier skateboard manufacturers in the US, the New Museum Store is producing a limited edition of 150 handcrafted skate decks made from Canadian Hardrock Maple wood featuring a high-gloss paint mix. This deck’s unique design is as much a nod to the ingenuity of skate culture as it is a tribute to the narrow, skated backstreets of the neighborhood the New Museum calls home. Check out a video of the skateboard in action.

The Chapman x New Museum Skateboard is available for purchase for $125 in store or at newmuseumstore.org.

Since 1991, Chapman Skateboards has been dedicated to producing the highest quality American-made skateboard decks. Many of Chapman’s boards have been instrumental in shaping the history of New York skateboarding, including those manufactured for Zoo York, Supreme, Illuminati, Shut Skates, and Hopps, as well as countless other independent brands. Founded and run by a skateboarder, Chapman continues to grow its legacy through unique partnerships and a commitment to pushing the limits of the craft.
