Venice Art Crawl Fundraiser Dinner This Saturday

07:59am
This Saturday August 15, the Venice Art Crawl will hold their first ever VAC fundraiser dinner at the home of art collector Ray Markow, adjacent to the Venice Canals.
The evening will be a celebration of all who have worked hard to keep Venice Art vibrant and will be a chance for the Venice Art community to get to know each other.
The event acknowledges the founders of the Venice Art Crawl, restaurateur Daniel Samakow, Venice Paparazzi’s, Edizen Stowell and VNC President, Mike Newhouse, with a presentation by Councilman Mike Bonin.
“This event is surely going to be one we hope to make a tradition.  We will be enjoying a dinner carefully curated by Andrea Tan with dishes inspired by Chef Alice Waters and some of our local favorite restaurants.” says VAC President, Sunny Bak.
The evening will start off with a cocktail hour on Markow’s rooftop overlooking Venice. Throughout the evening guests will enjoy art, music, and performances by local artists and there will be a silent auction.
Guests  are encouraged to dress in their most Avant Garde fashion.
Bak asks those who cannot attend but are interested in supporting Venice art to sponsor an artist who cannot afford to attend, but has contributed a great deal of time and art to the VAC.
“Your contributions help us continue fostering collaboration within Venice and reinvigorate the creativity that has historically made Venice such a vibrant and dynamic community.” says Bak
The Venice Art Crawl started five years ago as a small community event and has since grown to expose Venice artists to the world.
