Truro skateboard

A rainy afternoon in Truro but great to drop into the Royal Cornwall Museum and see that Nick Jensen's skateboard (painted as part of Bridging Arts' Whatever It Takes project) is still on display.
The lovely receptionist tells me that, when it first went on display, large numbers of boys came in to pay homage...
We're thinking of touring the other boards in the exhibition this autumn. They've been on display up to now at Penrice School, St Austell.

The painting on Nick Jensen's board was inspired by an arrowhead in the Museum
