One of the most original events in snowboarding and art is coming to Portland. I AM SNOWBOARDING, a collaborative art project in honor of Jeff Anderson, opens at the NEMO gallery (1875 SE Belmont), on Friday, January 8. The opening party is slated from 6-10pm and will feature collaborative art from snowboard photographers and artists, music from Kandi Coded and DJ Joelskool, raffles from the sponsors (Volcom, Vans, Lib Tech, etc.) and if that wasn't enough, Terry Kidwell will be on hand showing off some of his original snowboards soon to be put up for auction.
If you can't make the opening night party, the artwork will still be on display until Jan. 31 to peruse at your leisure. For more information and to buy prints to benefit the Jeff L. Anderson Memorial Fund and The Brothers Skate Park, visit iamjla.org.
