Cooper O’Connel’s hand painted decks will be featured in our NOMO Exhibition
Ene and I are in Sheboygan, Wisconsin this week on the second leg of our residency with Kohler Arts. We’ve been busy developing our NOMO project, which will be a celebration of non-motorized transportation in the region, with focus on DIY skate, surf and bike culture. NOMO will take place in two parts over the summer- a gallery exhibition and a participatory, outdoor exposition, with community-based events, workshops and demonstrations. We’ve been enjoying curating the exhibition and have tapped into a thriving, ‘maker’ community and surf/skate scene in Sheboygan, which is famous for having one of the best fresh water surf breaks in the world.
