Dear Art Lover,
We are excited to safely leave our homes again to celebrate Women’s History Month in March following the successful outdoor Venice Holiday Sign Lighting and the My Venice Holiday Poster contest.
The Legendary Women Artists of Venice Award was established in 2018 in honor of Women’s History Month by the Venice Art Crawl. The award recognizes the contribution of women to the arts and their profound impact on society. This year the awards take on more significance as it is the 12th anniversary of the Venice Art Crawl.
The Legendary Women Artists of Venice Award is presented biyearly to female artists whose life and work exemplifies the Venice Art Crawl’s mission of creating community through art, education, and social activism. The award acknowledges a lifetime of achievement for its recipients and a sisterhood in the arts. Awardees shine light on the benefits of creative expression, collaborative initiatives and creative workspaces. Awardees uphold the legacy of feminist art history and theory across multiple art disciplines, and meet the criteria of considerable accomplishment, achievement, and contribution to the arts in Venice community.
The ceremony will be held at the Hotel Erwin on Pacific Avenue in Venice at an exclusive rooftop event on Thursday, March 17, 2022 at 6:00-8:00 PM. Guests will be treated to an open bar, live musical performances, silent auction and an opportunity to meet and congratulate the Awardees.
