Quiksilver and NYC skate shop Autumn are hosting an 8 day skateboarding event that includes a retail store and indoor mini-ramp. The space is open to the public daily and will host two special events prior to Saturday’s closing. Tonight an art show called “Now What” will open in a side gallery space. It features the work of local NYC artists and is curated by one of Quiksilver’s professional skaters. ‘Land Your Thoughts’ is a jam-style skate contest planned for Saturday evening.

Beyond the events, the space also houses a temporary retail store selling clothing and accessories. Several of the display fixtures are walls from another space that look like they have been ripped out and re-purposed.

The custom built ramp in the back half of the space will eventually be donated to a NYC park or school.
