First launched in 2007 in Nixon’s hometown of Encinitas, California, The Art Mosh began as a small, one-night only grassroots event showcasing the artwork of local Nixon team riders and friends of the brand. Since its inception, The Art Mosh has grown into a global pop up art gallery tour with stops in Singapore, New York, Dublin, Paris, London, Vancouver and beyond. The works shown at any of The Art Mosh stops feature film, paint, sculpture, photography and music from artists, employees, industry friends of the brand. First conceptualized as a “party with a purpose” the core ideals of The Art Mosh have remained intact since the original event took place over 5 years ago.
“The Nixon Art Mosh first began as a way to bring our local community of talented friends, team riders and employees together for one night of good art, good times and good company”, said Nixon co-founder and VP of Marketing, Chad DiNenna. “The original Art Mosh idea is still very much the same today as it was back when we created it 5+ years ago. We’re fortunate enough to have caught the attention of large group of talented individuals from around the world who want to take part in this event and continue sharing different perspectives at each new stop, city-to-city, year-after-year.”
