The Venice Art Crawl’s mission is to foster and reinvigorate the creativity that has historically and currently makes Venice such a vibrant and dynamic community. Our goal is to share, inspire and promote collaboration within the Venice community through mixers and art events. We are an all volunteer run non-profit organization. 

Join us by attending, sharing your vision and what inspires you.

Note:There will be a $25 fee for all participating venues starting June, 2014. This gets you all relevant VAC marketing materials (banners, posters, maps), and a spot on the official VAC map.

Join us for our upcoming 2016 Venice Art Crawls! Our 2016 dates are March 17, May 19, July 21, and September 15. Get ready for your event and submit your information for the March 17, 2016 VAC by March 1st!

We will promote your event here on the site and on the official Venice Art Crawl map.

However, it is VERY important that you also promote your event through your social media and networking channels.

Your donations are much appreciated and go towards keeping the VAC alive in the community!

Absolute deadline to be on the official VAC map for the March 17th Crawl is March 1st, 2016

Carpet Shoes

Parking Spaces 

Park Row bet Windward/Market 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Carpet Shoes No borders. Art project is about our neighbors to the south and the idea of trying to be invisible while crossing into the USA.   People forget California was Mexico once. A lot of people have risked death, danger, robbery and rape to gain a better life in America. I grew up in San Diego, and saw the board go from 10 feet to 30 and had many friends cross over. I grew up with Sona Lee the daughter of Maria and Jose. I respect the people whom just like my relatives came to America for a better life.

Little Landscapes/Vinyl Night

Deborah Reilly Art Studio 

2240 Penmar Ave. 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Little Landscapes is a showing of works on paper of a post-apopolyptic nature. The art medium is collage taken from old sketchbooks and papers. An abstract painter, process artist at heart leads to a lot of pages of non-note. Deborah then takes these papers cuts, glues and arranges them to give a feel of place and time. In addition to the little landscape series there will be a couple of big paintings and other stuff like this great book written by a dog that gives back to the rescue community and who knows what else will be created by the time March 17th rolls around. Oh and Vinyl Night will be spinning some funky beats.
