Vans Custom Culture is proud to welcome new partner Americans for the Arts in celebrating the 2013 VANS Custom Culture Competition. Learning in the arts enables every individual to develop the critical thinking, collaborative, and creative skills necessary to succeed in today’s ever-changing world. Americans for the Arts envisions a country where every child has access to—and takes part in—high quality learning experiences in the arts, both in school and in the community. In recognition of this partnership, Vans has made a donation of $50,000 to Americans for the Arts.
About Americans for the Arts
For more than 50 years, Americans for the Arts has led the national effort to ensure that every American has an opportunity to participate in and appreciate all forms of the arts. Championing the cause of the arts and arts education in communities across the country, we dedicate ourselves each year to providing programs that help foster an environment in which the arts can thrive and contribute to the creation of more livable communities; generate more resources to support arts and arts education; and build individual appreciation of the value of the arts. From our offices in Washington, D.C. and New York City, we proudly serve more than 150,000 members and stakeholders annually. Learn more about us at www.AmericansForTheArts.org/go/Vans
