The Blade released their interview on the event today. We met with their writer who focused on art happenings in Toledo. For the most part the article isn’t as bad as it could be, but we all know for a fact that outside of skateboarding, people just don’t get us, or it.

“It’s a sport that intertwines perfectly with art; there’s an individuality you have in both,” said Michael Paulus, 34, skateboarder, artist, and coproducer of “Just Inspired.” This new exhibit is an homage to the young sport that exhilarates its athletes with speed, a sense of freedom, and moments of airborne weightlessness.
