CityPickle Artist Program

As part of CityPickle & Wollman Rink’s ongoing commitment to the New York City community, we invited artists throughout the city to contribute their vision to our clubhouse walls.

We are proud to feature four murals throughout the CityPickle at Wollman space, highlighting these authentic and diverse voices from across the city, to bring to life different themes of pickleball.

Scooter LaForge

Theme: Joyful Play

Scooter LaForge (b. Las Cruces, New Mexico) is a New York-based artist who has lived in the East Village for the past 18 years. His unique style mines the catalog of art history by infusing classical themes with a colorful sensibility. LaForge works in various media, including painting, sculpture, and drawing, and employs unorthodox techniques and striking iconic images.

Often combine-like, his works are a walking journal of images where ideas are explored and refined. LaForge approaches painting intuitively, absorbing what surrounds him and working on the canvas with agility and focus—drawing from a fertile inner emotional realm and an extensive painterly vocabulary.

His paintings have been shown at the Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York, the Friedrichshof Museum in Vienna, and the Spritmuseum/Absolut Art Collection in Sweden.

In 2015, the artist was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. He holds a BFA in painting from the University of Arizona.
