L&M Arts Venice, which opened after an extensive build out (and tear down of author Ray Bradbury’s childhood home) of 660 Venice Boulevard in September of 2010, will be closing their doors at the conclusion of Nick van Woert’s Labyrinth show on August 23rd.
Dominique Lévy and Robert Mnuchin, the founding partners of L&M Arts, will be dissolving their partnership and selling off the L&M location here in Venice. The location is now for sale and they are asking 6.5 million dollars. Hopefully an international gallery will take interest in the property, it would suck if a clothes store chain moved in.
