The Love & Guts Art Show, presented by Oakley, Juxtapoz and Thrasher, is set to make its return to New York City with a specially themed show, titled Eyes Wide Open. After a highly successful showing in Wellington, New Zealand and Bondi Beach, Australia earlier this year, Love & Guts created a sensation throughout the skateboard world with its themed centered around celebrating the lives of skaters that left us far too soon. Although gone physically, the impressions left by them have lived on, and to further immortalize them, Eyes Wide Open comes to street skating’s mecca, New York City, for what promises to the be largest Love & Guts exhibition to date.
The show historically has been centered around the art of skating legends Lance Mountain, Pat Ngoho, Steve Caballero and Steve Olson, but has gone on to include many other skaters from skating’s past and present. For Eyes Wide Open NYC, the show enlisted the talents of Chad Muska, Armando Roura, Don Pendelton, Giovanni Reda, Dennis McNett and Ivory & Shelter Serra whose work will be accompanying that of Mountain, Ngoho, Caballero and Olson. Eyes Wide Open will be taking place on Friday, June 4, 2010 from 7 to 10pm at the Red Bull Space, which is located at 40 Thompson Street, New York, NY. Music will be provided by DJ Taryn Manning and drinks will be provided courtesy of Red Bull.
