Museum features snowboard artist in new exhibit

VERMONT - Scott Lenhardt is the artist behind the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum’s new exhibit “Scott Lenhardt; Artistic Contributions to Burton Snowboards 1994 to Present.” Lenhardt, a fine artist from West Rupert, will be talking about his work on the virtual Red Bench Thursday, January 19, at 7 pm.
Lenhardt’s artistic diversity includes over 55 snowboard graphics that he’s created for Burton over the last three decades. He’ll share interesting stories about his work and collaborations with riders like Ross Powers and Danny Davis. Lenhardt has done work for Phish, Nike, Adidas, Mountain Dew, and more. He’s known for his pet portraits and a humorous series called “Twenty Four Hour Woman” but he’s best known for his work with Burton.
Lenhardt grew up snowboarding in southern Vermont and was part of the notorious Glebelands crew, who could be found shredding Bromley in the early to mid-1990s.
The colorful Chris Copley will be joining Lenhardt on the Red Bench asking probing questions about his artwork and more. Copley is a 20-year Burton veteran as the pro team manager and announcer for the US Open at Stratton. He has a history of witnessing, commenting, and heckling the best riders in the world.
Those who are Lenhardt fans, artists, people who are trying to break into the snowboard world or just love art should not miss this event. Have questions ready; the evening will end with an audience Q&A.
