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

Robert Graham is American Eclectic. Since its launch in 2001, Robert Graham was created on the premise of introducing sophisticated, eclectic style to the fashion market as an American-based company with an intention of inspiring a global movement.
Robert Graham’s approach to fashion design extends beyond the literal theme of cleverly and intricately mixed fabrics, trims, and embroidery. This luxury lifestyle brand is a true design house, developing garment-making techniques and complex textiles that are unique to the brand alone. Designs are inspired by various elements in time and place including vintage motifs, cultural statements in history, and awe-inspiring landmarks. The brand creates four menswear and womenswear collections a year: spring, pre-fall, fall and resort. The collection consists of men’s sportswear, premium denim, footwear, furnishings, accessories, outerwear, and women’s sportswear.
In 2016, Robert Graham launched its highly anticipated Blended Essences Collection for Men, three new fragrances that are the product of a singular blending and aging process that yield a flight of rich and expressive scents – blended at their absolute optimal level.
