This year Vans will be working with six artist from the Los Angeles giving them an opportunity to display their artwork on highly visable billboards around the city.
For the duration of the project these six artistsÃ¢Â€Â™ work will appear for two months at a time and culminate with a group show at a local gallery next November, presented by Vans. In addition, Vans will make a $1,000 donation to the local charity of each artistÃ¢Â€Â™s choice, on their behalf, giving back to the city that has given the company and these artists so much.
Of course, shoes will be made featuring work from each artist. Currently, only shoes designed by Marco Zamora and Sage Vaughn have been revealed.
