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. 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.
