The blue Screaming Hand, that indelible icon of skateboarding culture, celebrated its 30th birthday with creation of an eye-popping exhibition at the Santa Cruz Museum of History & Art (MAH). Created in 1985 by Santa Cruz graphics artist Jim Phillips, the howling appendage—which has been emblazoned on t-shirts, skateboards, and stickers all over the world—is honored with a fitting tribute to its influential legacy.

Your Santa Cruz County Holiday Stress Relievers

Photo by @lizkroft_sc_realtor

The holidays are supposed to be a time for slowing down and enjoying the company of good friends and family, but it’s easy to get caught up in the frenzy of Christmas shopping, decorating, gift exchanges, holiday work mixers, baking, party planning, and everything else that comes with making the holidays bright.
