Areas of Study


The Gallaudet CRATERs: Finding A Line Bowl was initially built by Dave Mutarelli (Lifetime Decks LLC) and Ben Ashworth (Sculpture Faculty at GMU) as commissioned by The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. The Kennedy Center’s “Finding A Line” event was led by the it’s VP for Community Engagement, Garth Ross, which hosted a number of professional skateboarders, musicians, artists, and the public to come skate and create together in the Center’s front yard. After the event, the Kennedy Center donated the bowl to Gallaudet University in order to serve the creative, academic and collaborative initiatives which began with a Special Topics course designed and taught by Gallaudet Associate Professor Max Kazemzadeh’s entitled “Skateboarding, Tracking & Data Visualization,” which has attracted ongoing support from the NASA Space Grant initiated by Gallaudet Chemistry & Physics Professor Dr. Dave Snyder, which now has a dedicated financial extension for the course.
