Win a Jeff Koons x Burton Philosopher Board!
Chill Foundation in the New York Times
Over the past year, world-renowned artist, Jeff Koons, collaborated with Burton Snowboards founder Jake Burton, to design a one-of-a-kind snowboard. The Philosopher Board was born out of this incredible partnership and a limited run of 50 boards were produced. In December, all but a few of the boards were sold at Burton's newly opened flagship store in New York City and all proceeds from the sale of the boards benefited Chill.
Chill's First Online Auction
“There’s this sense of vastness that overcomes you,” Mr. Koons said. “It’s an extremely philosophical, transcendent sport. You really feel connected to something much, much vaster than yourself. There’s a sense of space and time as very vast.”
