A-Lo Opens Solo Vans Photo Show in Sacto

That was a lot of O's in the title. Anyway, photographer Amanda Lopez has been documenting her Vans as she globe trots for a while now. On December 13th, 2008, she finally opens her solo show, True Story: The Vans Shoe Series, in her home town of Sacramento, CA. Yaahhhhh! Here's the show info. Check it out if you're in her 'hood.

"From its chance origins in a small Davis skate park, Amanda Lopez’s True Story: The Vans Shoe Series took the Sacramento born artist across the world. Working in the medium of photography, the exhibition thematically juxtaposes iconic images of Lopez’s own Vans black and white checkerboard shoes against the captivating cityscapes of Los Angeles, Pinar del Rio, Mexico City, Havana, and Teotihuacan."
