The Price Collection Creates Charity Skateboards for Japan!!!

Etsuko and Joe Price are known for their premier collection of Japanese Edo Period painting. Recently, The Prices created limited edition skateboard decks featuring some their favorite works from Edo Period Japan.

These sugoi(that’s Japanese for awesome/cool) skateboards will be limited to editions of 50 and all proceeds from their sale will go to help victims of the recent natural disasters in Japan through GlobalGiving.

The skateboards are available for purchase through the Bowers Museum Gift Shop. However, if you can’t make it to Santa Ana, California, the decks can be purchased from the Bowers Museum website.

We want to thank The Price Collection for supporting a cause we are very passionate about and encourage everyone to “Skate for Japan!”
