On Thursday, March 15th, the VAC will kick off their first art crawl of the year! Instead of having art events throughout the city, as past years, this year the VAC will focus on four specific areas, the first one being on Windward Avenue, between Windward Circle and the beach.
In honor of Women’s History Month, the VAC will acknowledge Venice trailblazing women artists at the Legendary Women Artists of Venice event where Judy Baca, Jules Muck, Emily Winters, Meryl Leibowitz and others. This special event will take place at 8:00 pm inside the Red Bull Room at Hotel Erwin, 1697 Pacific Ave, a short block south from Windward Avenue. This is an invite only reception. To get on the list, please email email@example.com.
Aside from the event at Hotel Erwin, Lindsey Nobel will be exhibiting her art at Bank of Venice, 80 Windward Avenue. Multi-media paintings by Richard Glass will be displayed at Glass Hair Design, 1501 Main Street at Windward Avenue. Edward “Pancho The Artist” Davila, will be present on Windward with his tattoo mobile bus. There will be exhibits and pop ups at various restaurants along this stretch of Windward such as: Great White, Larry’s, Hama Sushi, the Bank of Venice and Gotta Have It. Get a map at the Surfside VAC Info booth at 23 Windward Ave on March 15. You can also download a map of all participating businesses at www.veniceartcrawl.com.
This year the VAC is going to be more pedestrian friendly by focusing on four specific areas: March on Windward Avenue, May on Venice Boulevard, July on Washington Boulevard and the Boardwalk for the Afterburn in September. Painters, poets, performers and musicians from the community, and all over the world, display their art in this historic beachside haven for artists.Making the Venice Art Crawl more pedestrian friendly means we will be highlighting and focusing on events in a specific part of Venice for each crawl. For March, curate and plan your event on or near Windward Circle. The remaining crawls will have similar focused location guidelines for that month’s area.
A good way to connect with artists and businesses in each specific area is to attend our Mixers.
Looking forward to seeing you at the 2018 Venice Art Crawls.
The Venice Art Crawl is a Venice Chamber of Commerce Event.
