Don Nguyen "Live Heavy, Travel Light" Exhibition @ Scion A/V Installation RecapSometimes, skateboarding involves not skateboarding. In the case of Baker Skateboards professional
Sometimes, skateboarding involves not skateboarding. In the case of Baker Skateboards professional Don “Nuge” Nguyen, this has manifested itself through an interest in craftwork as an alternative creative endeavor. Scion’s A/V division, which works to support various local art scenes around the country, took notice of Nguyen and backed the skater to curate a new show: “Live Heavy, Travel Light.” In addition to being perfectly suited to Nuge’s approach to skating, the title of the show also references Nuge’s work, notably – dual-form custom cigar cases made of old guitars. Other items curated included carabiners, canteens and collapsible shovels, all of which were blessed with limited-edition Volume-4 detailing. Hollywood’s finest came out to support the travel and skateboarding-inspired art show, including Dylan Rieder, Braydon Szafranski, Abby Brothers, and a host of other pretty California people. Enjoy our recap of the event above.
