Surfboard Art Auction

Mission Federal ArtWalk is partnering with Rerip, a nonprofit organization that specializes in repurposing surfboards. Rerip will provide Mission Federal ArtWalk with 35 surfboards that will be transformed into original artwork and auctioned off at the event.
Popular singer-song writer, Jason Mraz, is participating and has been creating his own one-of-a-kind surfboard that will be available for auction online and in person at Mission Federal ArtWalk, where the surfboards will be on display.
