The weekly door to door papers that we receive usually don't have too much to offer. They show what soccer games are coming up, which furniture store is open that weekend or which local won a fishing contest. But the latest issue had something about a street art expo in the library closeby. We decided to go take a look during the opening.
Vans presents the 2012 Custom Culture program, where art students across the country compete to win money for their art program and a trip to LA by customizing four pairs of Vans shoes. High School art teachers are asked to register their art program for participation beginning February 1st. Hurry, only the first 1,000 registered schools are eligible to participate!
The BMX ART show is part of the rebeljam. This year in Eindhoven several photographers were asked to send in a couple of pictures. The rebeljam crew had enlargements made and put them up in a room upstairs for all to see during the weekend. Friday night was the opening party and most of the photographers showed up personally. Next to the pictures also some customized Vans slip-ons were on display that you can see by going HERE. For the photographs, look inside.
Several BMX related artists were asked to come up with an idea to customize a pair of white Vans slip-ons. The shoes were on display at the rebeljam in Eindhoven this weekend for all to see. In the next couple of weeks the shoes will be auctioned off to benefit BMX-ers in need who are facing big hospital bills. Take a look at the shoes and pick your favourites. These shoes came from the hands of Bob Haro, Mike de Wit, Joe-Tek, Taj Mihelich, Ron Bonner and Big Island got to do two pair.
