One of the 20th century’s most influential artists, Rauschenberg was known for his groundbreaking work and a spirit of generosity and social activism. Today, Rauscheberg’s works are held in the collections of the Tate Gallery in London, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Kunstmuseum Basel among others. 5% of the sales will go to support the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation’s grantmaking in art, social justice, climate change and education. Another 5% will go to support Skateistan, through The Skateroom.
The Skateroom is a social entrepreneurship that collaborates with renowned contemporary artists to produce iconic works of art on skateboards at accessible prices. Their sales directly support NGO's such as Skateistan, in their efforts to build skateparks and schools across Afghanistan, Cambodia, South Africa and plan to build many more in the coming future, empowering youth through skating, art and education. The editions are sold via selected museums globally, some art galleries and eventually edgy concept and design stores. The Skateroom donate up to 20% of their turnover to independent NGO’s (mostly to Skateistan), they also want to be an example of a fair and equitable company: they produce from certified sustainable forest in Canada and compensate yearly all of our carbon (CO2) emissions. They are therefore hoping to work with retailers that understand and respect such values.
