Funding call to help Venice Art Crawl artists

Venice based celebrity photographer Sunny Bak is looking for angel donors to bring Venice Art Crawl artists on tour with her for “Beastie Bak and the VAC”.

Included in this rare Beastie Boys exhibit are artists Isabel Alford Lago, Bill Dambrova, Todd Goodman, Bobbi Bennett, Mark Saterlee, Constance Brantley, Lindsey Nobel, F CK and Cey Adams, all who have shown at the Venice Art Crawl.

Currently Ms. Bak is president of the Venice Art Crawl, a Venice Chamber of Commerce-hosted event that shows in pop up galleries in Venice four times a year.

VAC’s goal is to foster and reinvigorate the creativity that has historically made Venice such a vibrant and dynamic community.

It is with this spirit that Sunny has included the nine VAC artists for this special Beastie Boys exhibit.

The VAC in just four short years has brought art back to Venice and created a community of artists and art lovers. Bak discovered Todd Goodman on the Venice boardwalk.

Historically Venice has been a long time haven for artists but in the last 15 years the gentrification of this once home to Jim Morrison and Dogtown Z boys has driven the artists away, Bak said.

“There is more art to see in Venice than the boardwalk,” she added.

“Beastie Bak and the VAC” will go to Miami, Washington DC and London if funded by the Kickstarter campaign that has already garnered support by Beastie fans across the world.

The exhibition at Studio 18 runs until October 16 and then to  Miami, Washington DC and London if funded by the campaign.
