Tonight art and community unite during the Venice Art Crawl. A quarterly event were artists and local businesses get together in a series of pop-up galleries around Venice.
Venice has a rich art history, even Basquiat lived here for a time in the 80’s. Today a melange of starving artists and creative professionals are drawn to Venice inspired by this creative history and driven to contribute to an artistic future.
The Venice Art Crawl is a mix of emerging and established artists whose art will be on display in restaurants, residences and stores around Venice. The event began 5 years ago and Edizen Stowell, one of the original founders and now committee member, sums it up by saying “It’s a great way to get out and meet the Venice art community”
A street party will be closing down Westminster at Abbot Kinney from 6pm-10pm. There will be performance art, music, live painting and dance and the event culminates with the Aftercrawl Party at Half a Dozen Roses at 4 Rose Ave.
All venues are open to the public so plan a route or simply follow the crowd and enjoy a night out in the neighborhood.
As the saying goes, without art the earth is just eh.
