SO! For those of you who missed out on our Art Crawl two weeks ago, its okay. We forgive you. But next time, well… well we just hope there is no next time. Well we hope there is a next time, obviously, we just mean that…we basically we just really want you to come.
The day of the crawl on December 19th, started out a little scary, with grey clouds looming over Venice with weather reports threatening rain and low temperatures. All of us thought, this is VENICE BEACH, it NEVER RAINS!
BUT! Thankfully the rain threats turned into a slight afternoon drizzle leaving the venice streets all shiny and sweet and the air dewy for us art crawlers who started rolling in as early as five pm.
The crawlers were greeted by volunteers at tables outside of restaurants who were handing out maps and other goodies. The maps showed you what areas around you were participating in the Venice Art Crawl, and all of them were within walking distance of each other. I know a lot of my friends were concerned about “thewalking part” but they quickly found out that there really wasn’t much walking and when your partying and buzzed with a big group of friends and people in the street walking around, the walking around became one of the highlights of the crawl.
First we had a drink and some pizza, and then we weaved through the crawl, seeing artwork and even a live art wall “reclaiming,” where a few artists reclaimed a previous wall of art that they painted that had later been repainted over.
Check out some of the photos of this winter’s Venice Art Crawl, and TRY AND TELL ME you don’t want to come to next one!
