There is also a section on skateboarders who have had a large impact on the skateboarding world over the decades. Pep Williams has a section displaying a portrait painted of him by Chase Tafoya, a couple of custom boards and several magazine covers and ads he has been on.

If you are in L.A. be sure to check out "HOW WE ROLL" Exhibition at the California African American Museum. It will run for 5 months until DEC. When entering the museum, viewers experience an eye-gasm of artwork galore in an 11,000 square foot enclosed modern courtyard. The 5,100 cubic feet of wall space allows the skateboarders (who are also the artists, photographers, musicians, and much more) to create beautiful, large-scale installations. These massive installations, by Chris Pastras, Pep Williams, Atiba Jefferson, Brett Cook, Alex “Duce”
Rodriguez (owner of Maintain skate shop in Hollywood, and a well-known graph artist), and Keith “K-Dub” Williams (founder and producer of Hood Games), are nicely lit by CAAM’S 34-foot high ceilings with domed skylights, as well as day windows for people to see as they pass by and enter the building.
