Tony Hawk’s Skatepark Project Teams Up With Yinka Ilori
The British-Nigerian designer and artist will create an installation of skateable objects, running from October 19 to October 23.
As a non-profit organization, The Skatepark Project – founded by Tony Hawk – has been a proponent of constructing more than 600+ public skate parks in the United States; raising millions of dollars for grants and community funding.
For the Fall 2022 season, TSP has teamed up with Unique Design X Paris to present an installation of skateable objects designed and created by Yinka Illori, running from October 19 to October 23. The British-Nigerian artist will assemble a complete park made up entirely of YI pieces. Additionally, the installation will run as part of a standalone event for Unique Design X Paris – alongside Paris+ Art Basel.
Welcoming visitors of all ages, the experiential site will benefit TSP through ticket sales available on the UDXP website.
