Vans Announces Summer Concert Series at House of Vans Brooklyn and Chicago

May 5, 2017 • Music

Vans, and long-time partner FYF, are excited to announce the return of Vans House Parties to House of Vans Brooklyn and will expand the summer series to the newly opened House of Vans Chicago. Vans House Parties will begin this May with 10 shows scheduled across Brooklyn and Chicago. Each House of Vans location will transform into an immersive, one-of-a-kind art experience created by Los Angeles-based visual artist, Nathan Bell. Bell’s work is an experiment in language, typography and aesthetic. Comprised of custom patterns, textures, drawings and wordplay, Bell riffs off of his recently acclaimed solo show at Subliminal Projects to create a black and white visceral “Off The Wall” experience.
