Venice Art Walk & Auctions Are This Sunday!

The Venice Art Walk & Auctions will celebrate their 34th anniversary this Sunday, hosting their traditional Art Walk (the largest art walk in Southern California) and a “Silent Art Auction and Family Fun Day” at Google’s Venice Campus on Main!

Venice Art Walk

The events are a fundraiser to benefit the Venice Family Clinic, a community health system that provides quality care to 24,000 low-income, uninsured, and homeless families and individuals on the Westside of Los Angeles.

The Venice Family Clinic is an awesome organization and the Art Walk is a great way to explore the neighborhood and find “hidden gems” around town! Meet the artists, make friends, help support the Clinic! Click here for more information and to buy tickets!

From the organizers:

The 2013 Venice Art Walk and Auctions proudly celebrates the achievements of two signature artists: Larry Bell and John Van Hamersveld.

Larry Bell is a contemporary American artist and sculptor whose 40 years of work can be found in the collections of many of the world’s top art aficionados, public spaces, major museums and cultural institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Whitney Museum of American Art; and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

John Van Hamersveld is a renowned graphic designer, illustrator and artist perhaps best known for creating the brilliant and instantly iconic image for “The Endless Summer,” the seminal 1966 surf movie by Bruce Brown. As signature artist, Van Hamersveld created the graphic imagery and logo for the 2013 Venice Art Walk & Auctions.

The curatorial committee for the 2013 Venice Art Walk & Auctions is composed of influential leaders in the art, architecture and philanthropy communities including Robert Berman, Laddie John Dill, Andrea Fiuczynski, John Geresi, David Hertz, Constance Lawton, Sam Lubell, Leo Marmol, Laura Maslon, Eliza Osborne, Barbara Schwan, Ali Subotnick, and Billie Milam Weisman.
