Last weekend Vans sent me down to check out opening night of Supply and Demand, art gallery and installation, which opened October 12that the House of Vans for a one-night invite-only event. (You might remember seeing the Supply & Demand show post from last year as well). Supply and Demand, set up by Russ Pope and Vans, featured the works of Neil Blender, Nathaniel Russell, Chris Yormick, Jay Howell, Jamahl Williams, Russ Pope, Rich Jacobs, Dennis McNett, and Jai Tanju in a one night special event with free mini burgers, quesadillas, beverages, and a musical performance by Super Juice. Thanks again to Vans and Russ Pope for sending me out there for the event.
