Love + Guts Exhibit at Fridge Gallery

What: An art exhibit centered around premier skateboarding magazine, Thrasher. If balancing on a moving piece of wood is your idea of a good time, this might be for you. If it’s not so much you idea of a good time, you can still enjoy the punk aesthetic of the art and the gravity-defying stunts caught on film.
