Shred Creatively at New Park

December 2010 marked a milestone in snowboarding and cultural history with the successful opening of the Art Park on the slopes of Mammoth Mountain. The progressive project is the world’s first terrain park at a mountain resort to combine original art with jumps, rails, boxes, wall rides and jib-able sculptures.

Curated by AR4T in conjunction with The JLA Project, the debut was a huge success.

“The overall response to the park has been great,” said Mammoth Action Sports Brand Manager Josh Chauvet. “We are getting lots of positive feedback from everyone. It’s great to see people going to the park and just checking out the art. The awareness is building and more people are enjoying it every day.”

Artistic Method
Some artists focus on their creative process. This rider focused on his creative method.

The park encourages skiers and snowboarders of all kinds to cruise through. Signs provide background information for each piece, or they can ride the features created by artists like Jamie Lynn. The unique and challenging rideable features, were custom-made by fabricator Dustin del Giudice in the Mammoth Mountain garage in December 2010.

“Dustin did an amazing job taking the emotion from the paintings and translating them to another dimension,” said AR4T curator Torrey Cook. “Just casually taking turns through the Art Park is a feeling like no other. I can’t think of a more exciting way to experience art.”

The Art Park experience begins with a ride up Canyon Express, Chair 16 at Mammoth Mountain. Riders glimpse brightly painted handrails and ledges through the pines before strapping in and following the signs to Round Robin trail.

The first show in the park is in honor of Mammoth snowboarding legend, Jeffrey Lin Anderson. An artist and snowboarder, he passed away in 2003 at age 23, but not before leaving his mark on the world. The paintings from “I AM SNOWBOARDING,” a collaborative art exhibit in honor of what would have been Jeff’s 30th birthday, traveled the world in 2010 and continues into 2011. Its popularity has set the Art Park up for a long run through April, 2011, and has led the way to a second Art Park at Mammoth to open March 2011.

In honor of Mammoth Art Park and The JLA Project, Laguna Beach gallery 210 AR4T Space will be showing prints from the “I AM SNOWBOARDING” body of work through the end of January.

    - I’ve been thinking the same thing for the past year. If othres before me can do something, why can’t I? It’s comforting to know that even really talented people such as yourself have the same doubts sometimes. One of my favorite quotes is:Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. – Theodore RooseveltFebruary 17, 2011   12:31 am

    How do you do?!
    tadalafil cialis from india
    I ordered through Internet abroad, Tadalafil active ingredient, effect remarkable, by-effects aren’t present, that sell at us didn’t try, having read notes I won’t risk at all. For anything I don’t agitate, but for a long time I try all that it is possible to buy abroad through Internet: in total that without the recipe as our fakes there is a lot of and quality of drugs often so-so.
