THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16th.
ABOUT I AM SNOWBOARDING: Traveling art exhibit in honor of Jeffrey Lin Anderson, as seen on FUEL TV, San Francisco Channel 2 News, Portland KOIN Channel 6 morning news, etc. and now featured in Unbound magazine, is "one of the most original events in snowboarding and art.” In honor of what would have been Jeffʼs 30th birthday, a group of 44 world-renowned photographers and artists have come together to pay tribute to Jeff, and to raise money for the JLA Memorial Fund. Each image started with a photo of Jeff that was captured by someone who knew him well. The photo was enlarged onto canvas, and a separate artist then painted, or used a medium of his choice to create a unique collaborative work of art. The resulting pieces are one of a kind. The partnerships in this project are a tribute to the depth of the snowboarding, skateboarding and art communities. For info please visit IAMsnowboarding.com.
