 202 Horizon Ave       8 pm – 12 am

Please join us on the Venice Art Crawl this Thursday night, June 19th at 8pm at Jules Muck’s Art Haus to have a drink and raise some money for the Venice Symphony Orchestra….who knows what tricks Muck has up her sleeve but come by and say hello and find out the VSO plans for the summer!

Remember, conductor Wesley Flowers and assorted VSO musicians have been teachingmusic to homeless kids every Friday at the Teen Project.  Our goal is to give these kids something stable that they can get excited about participating in and hopefully inspire them to pick up an instrument for regular one-on-one lessons where we provide them a free instrument.
The VSO fundraising will also be going to provide a free concert for every one of Venice’s 6 elementary schools during the next academic year.  These kids get little or no music and arts education and we’re able to give them a day of inspiration through your contributions!

“A Taste for Art” @ The Gallery at Hal’s, (Serious Fine Art Fun)
1349 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA 90291         6-10PM

Venice, CA — Inaugurating a program of changing exhibitions, Hal’s opened its newly-renovated private dining room  gallery just in time for the Venice Art Walk (May 18). Our first show, “A Taste for Art”, draws entirely from works   loaned by leading Southern California artists and collectors, and includes film clips edited for video by co-founder   Mark Farina, who heads the video lab at Otis College. From Andy Warhol’s iconic Campbell soup cans, to Stanley   Kubrick’s lens, to some of today’s cutting-edge, emerging, local artists, the exhibition explores a universal theme in   painting, printmaking, sculpture, art objects and film.  Hal’s is pleased to offer a special ‘Taste for Art’ dinner prix fixe menu ($28) Sunday thru Thursday nights for the   duration of the show.

Calling all Venice Art Crawlers! Reserve a table with us Thursday night, June 19th!
