Down the welcoming courtyard, M SPACE will present WALL RIDE, inviting creative minds involved in the art of skateboard decks to showcase their work on the long wooden fen…ce. From concept to mass production, attendees will be able to view the Wall Ride of design sketches and board artwork that appears both on no name skateboard decks as well as from some of the most widely recognized brands & artists, including Asbury Park’s own, Metal Skateboards.

The second half of the M SPACE addition to the tour is PRINT, FOLD, STAPLE – THE ART OF THE ZINE, curated by crazy-talented Billy Mecca, publisher of SALT and Beachcruiser.

Showcasing a wide range of works from a number of self publishers & DIYers, zines from far and wide will reveal the variety of graphic design styles, themes and characteristics of publishers in this eclectic medium. After passing along the courtyard and entering the lobby, visitors can enjoy looking through our current reading room collection of zines.
