The Art on Burton
January 20 - April 15, 2012
Opening Reception: Janaury 20, 5-7pm
The Art on Burton examined the profound role of art and design on the culture of snowboarding.
Snowboarding's imagery and products have consistently reinforced its position as an outsider sport. These artists - and the creative teams at a company like Burton - are driving this sport and its significant sector of pop culture. There are few other examples where fine artists' work reaches the public so directly and prolifically. Burton itself is a Vermont story about snow, art, design, a dream, and the success of a company, a sport and a culture.
