Hi RDCollectives
Looking forward to this one. 
The Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) is set to host Skate It or Hang It?!

The Evolution of Skateboard Art, an exhibition examining the visual aspects skateboarding, centering heavily on skateboard graphics. 

The show opens on June 16, 2012.

A bit of a rundown on the exhibition:
With a broad focus on skateboard graphics—in particular the styles and methods used to embellish skateboard decks—the exhibition will appeal to a broad range of skateboarders, designers, artists and to Atlanta’s youth in general.

Visitors will come to understand skateboard graphics in a variety of ways, as Skate It or Hang It!? will include: A survey of skateboard art from the 1970s to the present day.

Original installations by Atlanta-based artists influenced by skateboard art Charlie Owens and Alex Brewer aka HENSE.

Educational activities in which children are invited to design and create their own skateboard decks.

Interviews with VCJ and Jim Phillips, along with personal appearances and art by Sean Cliver, Andy Howell, Wes Humpston, Lance Mountain, Michael Sieben, and Steve Olson.
