Lightning Bolts is a BMX-inspired exhibit created around the historic introduction of BMX as an Olympic sport. Nike 6.0 teamed up with BMX Hall of Famer, Bob Haro, recreating his iconic number plate as a blank canvas. A select group of contemporary artists, each sharing a cultural connection to BMX, were invited to partake.

Continuing the spirit of Lightning Bolts, contributing artist Harrison Boyce, will be teaching kids about the art of stenciling and the creative inspiration behind BMX number plates as part of Nike’s MAKE SOMETHING workshop series. This Saturday, Dec. 13th Harrison, of, will be bringing the world of art to approx 15 teenagers from Stoked Mentoring, a non-profit organization that combines action sports and mentoring to teach life skills to at-risk youth in New York and Los Angeles.
