Photo Recap: #BuildSomething Showcase

Nestled within the AvidXchange Music Factory lives a super cool place called Industry Coworking. Made up of many spacious offices, desks and conference rooms, this one-of-a-kind coworking space was built for entrepreneurs, start ups and creatives. Now that we’ve brought you up to speed about Industry, we’ll fill you in about our #BuildSomething event.

#BuildSomething is the mantra of the coworking community at Industry. It’s a call to all creators to build something, anything, to make the world a better place. At AIGA we’re pretty big fans of Industry, so when owner, Tyler Ford, asked us if we could call on Charlotte artists to help build a skate deck gallery for Industry, we were totally in!

We were blown away by how many of you donated your time and your talents to create an incredible gallery of boards. We couldn’t wait to show off these incredible works of art, so we grabbed some beer and invited everyone to have a good time. So just in cased you missed it, we’ll do what we always do and recap it for you!

What? Did you think they appeared magically on the wall? Here’s a picture of our awesome board members installing the boards.

Where there’s an AIGA event, there’s usually beer, wine and a good time!

Here’s proof that there were a lot of people there.

‘Questionable’ that is the question.

This guy makes lookin’ at boards look cool.

That board, she made that.

Strange, isn’t it?
