There will be a "Monster Graffiti Paint-Out" this Sunday at the Art Walls on the beach – it’s an event for families with lots of great activities for kids. The Paint-Out will benefit ICU Art , the Venice-based graffiti-arts advocacy group who manages the walls, and the artists will be ICU artists. The Cesar Chavez mural was one of my favorite versions of the art walls, but I’d love to see a whole wall of monsters!
The Art Walls lost a big part of their city funding this year due to budget cuts, so they could use events like this to help keep them going! Show your support and bring the family! A bunch of information follows after the jump.
