Skate decks to be auctioned



BAR HARBOR — MDI Skatepark Association’s “All Decked Out!” skateboard art show and auction, featuring Maine-made skate decks designed by local artists to benefit and help build a skate park in Bar Harbor, is underway at Choco-Latte, 240 Main St., through June 30.

Local artists were provided with blank skateboard decks and asked to create works of art in any medium. The skate decks will remain on display and can be bid on for the month of June. Proceeds from the month-long silent auction will benefit the MDI Skate Park, which will break ground this year.

The silent auction bidding began Friday, June 3, and will close on Thursday, June 30, at 7 p.m. Opening bids start at $50, with a $10 minimum bid increase, or you can secure the board of your choice with a buy-it-now price of $300.

The MDI Skatepark Association’s mission is to create a safe, fun and accessible skate park for the Mount Desert Island community and its visitors to help promote and to provide space for healthy activities like biking, skateboarding and roller skating.
