Matthew Barney x Lance Mountain in Detroit

Posted January 9th, 2013 under Charity, Documentaries, Kids, Sports

A documentary following Lance Mountain’s trip to Detroit to skate the Matthew Barney designed skateboard. As part of his “Drawing Restraint” series, Barney donated the board at auction to benefit the construction of the Juxtapoz x Power House Productions Ride It Sculpture Park in Detroit, in the same neighborhood where Juxtapoz helped PHP buy homes in 2009.

“In 2009, Juxtapoz Magazine celebrated its 15th Anniversary with a special exhibition and auction to benefit Power House Productions, and Detroit-based non-profit organization that was establishing a sustainable artist-in-residence program community-based arts programs in a previously foreclosed neighborhood. When our benefit raised over $150,000 for PHP, they were able to purchase and refurbish homes on the same block as their home, the Power House, and Juxtapoz invited Swoon, Retna, Ben Wolf, Richard Colman, Monica Canilao, and Saelee Oh to paint and reimagine the residences.

Three years later, the neighborhood is beginning to take shape, and this past summer, the Ride It Sculpture Skate Park was built on four vacant commercial lots along East Davison Freeway, another creative endeavor that fuses art and community.”
