VAC FAQ

What is the Venice Art Crawl?

The VAC’s mission is to preserve the arts in Venice, a place that has historically been known as a vibrant and dynamic art 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 which is a committee of the Venice Chamber of Commerce.

When is the VAC?

During 2017 the Venice Art Crawl happens 4 times a year: March 16, May 18, July 20, and September 21 and 22. Start time: 6PM and officially ends at 10PM but many venues are open later. Designated streets will be featured for 2017. The first March 16 VAC themed “This is Venice” will be on Venice Blvd. from Speedway (near the beach) to Beyond Baroque Literary Art Center 681 Venice Blvd. (near Oakwood Blvd.)

If you know artists or have a venue in this stretch of Venice Blvd., please submit your event on the main page of the VAC website. This will confirm your participation in the VAC. The May 18 and July 20 Venice Art Crawls will be on other streets in the community. Stay tuned and nominate your street at info@veniceartcrawl.com. September 21 and 22 VAC will be on the Venice Boardwalk between the skate park and the police station at Venice Beach.

Does my VAC event have to be in an art gallery?

Create your Venice Art Crawl pop up gallery anywhere along the designated street that month. Any restaurant, retail store, hotel, art gallery, or homeowner can host a pop up gallery. Be creative!  For example, a wall in your restaurant, your outdoor patio, hotel lobby or room, your living room, front yard or garage, can all be pop up galleries. If you have an idea but are not sure if it will work or not, send us an email: info@veniceartcrawl.com.

What are the steps to get involved?

1. Attend a VAC monthly mixer.  

Mixers are a great way to connect with artists, merchants and neighbors to exchange ideas and let each other know who has available space for shows.  Dates for our monthly mixers will be the third Thursday of the month when there is not an art crawl event.

2.  Curate your own show. 

Once you have your event, the location and all the artists you will feature, please submit your event on the main page of the VAC website.

3.  Submit your event!
