_After the success of the B Fam Garage Art Exhibition at the end of 2011, B FAM decided it’s time to do another show. This time they teamed up with Revolution to combine their love for skating and art, in the form of a skate deck exhibition._
B FAM gave 31 of Cape Town’s most loved artists a second hand deck that’s had a tricked out life under the feet of some of CT’s favorite local skaters and told them to revamp it.
