Venice Art Crawl tonight to feature 30 venues

The Venice Art Crawl returns tonight, Sept. 18 from 6 pm featuring more than 100 artists and 30 venues for a night of art, music, design, and entertainment.

The entire neighborhood of Venice becomes a showplace for everyone to appreciate the art that is being created every day while getting to know the businesses that encourage it.

For the first time ever the VAC will be closing down a block on Rose Ave between 3rd and 4th Avenues.

The street art party will feature: glow-in-the-dark live art group shows, unique “art cars” including one by Lisa Frank being live painted by Jules Muck on Rose, live interactive art installations, music and much more.

In addition to the street art party there will be amazing events all over Venice.

These happenings will be presenting up-and-coming, ground-breaking artists in a range of media including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and mixed-media.

Some of these venues include: Hal’s, In Heroes We Trust where Elizabeth Alford Lago will be live painting, Electric Lodge, Cadillac Hotel at 8 Dudley showing photographers Sunny Bak and Julian Lennon’s photo for a Silent Auction, San Luis Bakery giving out free samples, The Agency new offices on Washington showing photographer Kwaku Alston, SOS dispensary showing artist Angelina Cristina.

Also on this evening, The Venice Symphony Orchestra will hold a fundraiser for music education programs for homeless youth and free concerts for public school students.

The Venice Art Crawl is an organization by and for the people and was established August 2010.

VAC is now part of the Venice Chamber of Commerce and wants to share, inspire and promote collaboration within the Venice populace through mixers and art events hosted by local businesses and artists’ studios.

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

Pick up VAC maps at the three information booths: Danny’s Venice, 23 Windward Ave, and Rose Ave near 3rd Avenue and Aust on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
