Snowboard Auction Starts Today!
Vancouver Opera's online auction of custom Prior snowboards, featuring award-winning illustrations by world-renowned artist Edel Rodriguez begins today! Each one of a kind autographed snowboard is listed individually. Bid on one or bid on all!
You can find our snowboard auctions on Ebay for Charity here:

The Marriage of Figaro
Proceeds will benefit the Young Artist Coaching Intensive program (YACIN) at Vancouver Opera, a program designed to bring the hottest young opera singers together for a week of intense vocal coaching.
About the artist:
Edel Rodriguez was born in Havana, Cuba in 1971. He majored in painting at Pratt Institute (BFA) and Hunter College (MFA). His work has appeared in five picture books, on stamps for the US Postal Service and on posters for films and Broadway shows. He is a regular contributor to New Yorker magazine and was an art director at TIME Magazine for over a decade. He has won numerous awards for his illustrations.
With only four in the world, these snowboards will certainly appeal to both the snowboarder set and the art collectors. So ride the boards or hang 'em up; that, we'll leave up to you!
