An Epic Day at the Beyond The Streets Art/Skate/Live Music Event!

Beyond the Streets was one of the coolest events ever! 

Venice showed up en masse in China Town for  a gigantic art show that included a fully skate-able replica of the Venice Pavilion and sets by Excel and The Shrine!  There was free beer and food, fantastic art, and most importantly, lots and lots of familiar faces!   And Venice Paparazzi was on the scene to capture the whole thing.  A big high five and fist bump to Adidas Skateboarding, Beyond the Streets, Juice Magazine, and the hundreds of folks who put in work on this amazing happening!  View event coverage by Venice Paparazzi’s Edizen below!

Beyond the Streets is the premier exhibition of graffiti, street art and beyond, celebrating the soaring heights to which the world’s most recognizable modern art movement has risen. Curated by author and historian Roger Gastman, graffiti’s foremost authority, BTS is a groundbreaking multimedia showcase of paintings, sculpture, photography, installations and more throughout 40,000+ square feet of industrial indoor and outdoor space.

Juice Magazine features core skateboarding, surfing and music & in-depth interviews with the icons of Pools, Pipes & Punk Rock.
