Don’t miss X Games gold medalist and Oakley’s own Ryan Sheckler on “Inside X,” ESPN’s weekly webcast bringing the biggest names in action sports to you LIVE every Tuesday heading into X Games 17.
Oakley has been synonymous with high-end style and art. So it’s no surprise that the Big O enjoys partnerships with artists entrenched in the lifestyle community. Already displaying collaborative work with artists through the Artist Series Program and similar activities, Oakley is taking its role in art and skate culture to a new level with Don Pendleton. For the first time ever, Oakley hosted an event on Wed June 29th to showcase Don’s creations. The rocking gathering – in the middle of New York’s stylish Soho community – offered media, art followers, special Guests and Oakley accounts the chance to see art that ties directly into skateboarding, pop, lifestyle and relevant culture…along with the O’s brand passion, of course.
Love and Guts continues to smash its way from coast to coast. Oakley’s killer skate-art show tour dropped into NYC last Thursday night. The much anticipated Artist Collaboration with Juxtapoz Magazine creator Robert Williams – and his heavy ties to Skateboarding’s past and present – brought photography from 30 years of Thrasher Magazine to the Lower East Side.
