The Art on Burton
January 20 - April 15, 2012
Opening Reception: Janaury 20, 5-7pm
The Art on Burton examined the profound role of art and design on the culture of snowboarding.
Snowboardingâ€™s imagery and products have consistently reinforced its position as an outsider sport. These artists - and the creative teams at a company like Burton - are driving this sport and its significant sector of pop culture. There are few other examples where fine artistsâ€™ work reaches the public so directly and prolifically. Burton itself is a Vermont story about snow, art, design, a dream, and the success of a company, a sport and a culture.
