This year the VAC is going to be more pedestrian friendly by focusing on four specific areas: March on Windward Avenue, May on Venice Boulevard, July on Washington Boulevard and the Boardwalk for the Afterburn in September. Painters, poets, performers and musicians from the community, and all over the world, display their art in this historic beachside haven for artists.Making the Venice Art Crawl more pedestrian friendly means we will be highlighting and focusing on events in a specific part of Venice for each crawl. For March, curate and plan your event on or near Windward Circle. The remaining crawls will have similar focused location guidelines for that month?s area.
A good way to connect with artists and businesses in each specific area is to attend our Mixers.
