For a subject that we rarely touch on, skateboarding was popular on MOCO in the summer of 2012. In June with a dramatic category defining design, and in July as an art form.
The world's first large scale skateable sculptural installation, Skateable Sculpture by Rich Holland, was shown at the Kiasma Museum of Modern Art in Finland (itself a work of art by Steven Holl).
