This past Saturday, July 23rd, Vans Vault launched its highly anticipated collaboration with artist and founder of Juxtapoz magazine Robert Williams. Vans took to Resident in the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles to help gather industry folks, Vans fans, close friends, and music lovers to help celebrate the epic partnership. As a jumpstarter to the event, the mild mannered Robert Williams held an intimate private lecture/Q&A for the first part of the event, in which he gave attendees a chance to learn more about his life as well as an introspective look on his art. As the lecture came to an end, Vans offered complimentary food and beverages provided by KTCHN LA and Resident to further extend the celebratory event as well as a live shows from Meatbodies and OFF! to set off the remaining hours of the event.
