From tourists to every-day Venice Beach roamers, the Venice Public Art Walls are a large contribution to the vivid color, zest, and infamous livelihood of Venice Beach. What many people don’t realize is that much of these graffitied walls and murals are completely legal, thanks to the believers at In Creative Unity- ICU and there creation of The Venice Art Walls. The Venice Art Walls are located on the sand in Venice Beach and as of June 3, 2007 artists with a valid permit are invited to express themselves and paint on the walls— legally!
Check out some of the walls from over the years!

“In Honor of Cesar Chavez Day,” Artist Unknown.
Cesar Chavez was an American farm worker and civil rights activist activist, who, alongside Dolores Huerta, co-founded the United Farm Workers Union and thus he is a major hero for the Latino community. He is perhaps most famously known for coining the famous phrase “Si, se puede” or “Yes, one can.” This mural was done by an unknown artist in Venice in 2008.
