Vans®, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand is excited to partner with Tilly’s and Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow to unveil plans for a local art installation created by artist Zio Ziegler. Beginning July 6, 2015, this three-month art exhibition will be of vast cultural value to the community raising awareness to local arts programming and the cultural depth that lives in Orange County.
Vans, Tillys and AR4T each support local and global artists through events, gallery exhibitions and product collaborations. The partners have tapped into long-time friend Zio Ziegler to transform the exterior wall of Tilly’s Ecommerce facility located at 17 Pasteur in Irvine, CA. The public exhibition, one of the largest in Orange County, will be visible to the hundreds of thousands of commuters traveling the 405 Fwy on a daily basis. Known for his paintings and large-scale outdoor murals, Ziegler will ambitiously cover the 15,000 square foot wall in just three days.
Ziegler’s powerful work appeals to many walks of life, young and old. It has tones of influence from historical and literary figures to master painters, while having a contemporary style that speaks to the modern world. Orange County is known for its population of both well-versed and well-educated residents, as well as cutting-edge companies and brands that are pushing the envelope. Ziegler’s art resonates across these communities and both his involvement and the scale of this project will bring worldwide attention to the amazing cultural experiences happening here in Orange County.
