Sell Your Deck Art: 50% of proceeds belong to artist; or keep your artwork.  We will donate $50 to Art for Aids for each sale of the skateboard art. 

Art for AIDS supports the behavioral health of underserved LGBTQ and HIV-affected San Franciscans. We are so appreciative of your talent and your generous donation. You will help make it possible for their clients to receive life-saving care. 

It does not matter which direction you design your skateboard.

How to prepare artwork to hang:

  • Make sure that there is a 3x5 index card on the back of your artwork that lists your Name, Phone Number, Title of your work and asking price or “NFS” if not for sale.

  • Your artwork must have a hanging mechanism to be accepted. You can use a thick fishing line to loop through the skateboard holes, OR drill short screws into the back of your skateboard (not the existing holes - they will fall out) and then wrap picture frame wire around the screws to create your hanging mechanism.
