From our collection to yours
Vans and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles are two institutions that encourage the expression of creativity, and are committed to making creative expression accessible to everyone. This season, Vans and MOCA are proud to collaborate on a collection of footwear and apparel that celebrates creativity with California roots.
In 1976, Chicana muralist Judith F. Baca began working on The Great Wall of Los Angeles, a monumental mural depicting the story of Los Angeles through the lens of interracial harmony. Spreading over 2,700 feet of wall space in the Tujunga Wash of the San Fernando Valley, The Great Wall spans pre-historic California to the 1950s, showing a range of historical events, including the Zoot Suit Riots, the fight against the covenant laws in South Central LA, and the internment of Japanese-Americans. It was collaboratively created with local artists, community members, and more than 400 youth during the summers between 1976 and 1983. Highlighting the 1950s section of the mural that celebrates Olympic champions, the Vans x MOCA Judy Baca Long Sleeve Boyfriend Tee brings history and art together as it pays homage to this iconic mural.
