Father to two skateboarders, Patrick Haywood’s photographic tile mural is made up of 150 portraits of members of the local skateboarding community. Fabricated through a unique 4-color tile glaze process each portrait is framed by the subject’s response to the question “Skateboarding… what does it mean to you?”. The project was coordinated with local skate shops, with a goal of promoting a sense of ownership in and stewardship of the park.
The skate park public art project was commissioned through the City of Santa Cruz 2% public art program.
