14th Annual Leucadia Artwalk 2018 at Bing Surf Shop
Leucadia will be alive and happening this Sunday, August 26th. All along the 101 highway from La Costa Ave. to Encinitas Blvd, events and local art will be on display. At Bing Surf Shop, we have some fun stuff going on that should help get you to come down and take it all in!
The Art of the Surfboard
LIVE BOARD ART
Scott Bass of the Board Room will be on hand to guide attendees through the evolution of a surfboard, from blank ( supplied by Millenium Foam) to a finished Bing Surfboard. Scott will be talking story and answering all your shaping related questions.
Marissa Quinn and Jeff Meyer, celebrated board artists from Leucadia will be live painting as part of the interactive exhibit. Come watch two boards come to life before your eyes! Both blanks are donated by Millennium Foam. One board is shaped by Bing and the other by Leucadian Ryan Sakal of Aryse Surfboards.
Both boards are up for raffle for $5 at Bing on the day of the event at $10 afterwards. Visit the Jeff Meyer board at Surfy Surfy 974 N. Coast Hwy 101 and the Marissa Quinn board at Bing 802 N. Coast Hwy 101 for the month of September.
COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY ART PROJECT
Leucadians with photos, objects, swag, t-shirts, logos, stickers and tools from our board building roots are encouraged to bring their artifacts to the interactive photo booth at Bing Surfboards during LeucadiART Walk between 10 am and 5pm. We’ll photograph you with your favorite boards, Stonesteps contest shirts, see the tools of our board building past and hear about anything else that plays a part in our funky off-beat past.
Come down to Bing Surf Shop and browse the images of other artifacts to see what is unearthed. All the photos and stories will be compiled into a community art project! Come tell your stories of yore and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same.
Leucadia local and world-renowned artist, Andy Davis, will be live painting a surf-inspired mural that captures surfing’s artistic side on the south wall of Bing’s building! ( Weather permitting - he is in Hawaii at the moment and Hurricane Lane is delaying flights in and out )
