2018 will mark the second official year of House of Vans marquee series, SESSIONS, designed to enable emerging creative talent in the Brooklyn and Chicago communities. These winter, bi-weekly events, running January through April, will include open skate, emerging musician showcases, and live art. RSVP‘s here.

The SESSIONS music showcase has evolved this year, and will include a chance to be chosen to “Share the Stage” with a global headliner talent at a future House of Vans Brooklyn show. Additionally, each House of Vans event will now feature a different live muralist commissioned to paint one panel of a larger art installation. This will evolve into a collective art mural over the course of the series, completed with the final event at each venue. Brooklyn will feature murals by Ian Ferguson, Saskia Wariner, Matt Borgia, and Rob Corradetti, while Chicago will feature Junkyard, O.J. Hays, Nate Otto, Tatiana Garcia, and Lauren Asta.
