New skate ramp to become art exhibit at Cranbrook Art Museum

You've got until Nov. 12 to go make your mark on the new ramp at Modern Skate Park in Royal Oak before it becomes an art exhibit at Cranbrook. If you're not a skater, you can still come check out this 25-foot-long art installation. 


"Cranbrook Art Museum just completed the installation of a new half-pipe skate ramp at Modern State Park in Royal Oak. Skaters are encouraged to use the ramp over the next few weeks and leave their mark, then the surface will be peeled away and it will become part of the Museum’s new exhibition,  My Brain Is in My Inkstand: Drawing as Thinking and Process, which opens on  November 16.

The exhibition examines the work of 22 artists from around the world as they show how the act of drawing impacts both artistic and scientific thinking. This project is directed by Chemi Rosado-Seijo, an artist whose  History on Wheels  project is an ongoing exploration of the correlation between skateboarding and artistic practice."
