Still in its infancy stage, the monthly Venice Art Crawl continues to grow. Again on this third Thursday of the month, at restaurants and pop-up galleries up and down the boardwalk, there will be live music, DJs, and, of course, lots of art, much of it local.
A highlight for April will be Momentum's presentation at 57 Market St. of work by renowned photographer, Sunny Bak. In celebration of the Beastie Boys release of their latest CD, Bak has agreed to show her exclusive rarely seen photographs of The Beastie Boys from the 1980s. Music from their career will be featured along with other old school hip hop favorites. A limited edition of 50 signed and numbered prints will be available for purchase and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Prop 8 Films
will be showing the street artist Skount, and Canal Club across the street will be offering a group photography show in their back room entitled “Land of the Lost Angels”.
The is exhibiting art by local teens. Students from Westchester High have created politically conscious art about our food supply. They are focusing on raising awareness about the dangers of Aspartame and GMO foods. This charming little gallery, curated by Leila Levi, will also have on display a variety of wearable art, jewelry and accessories.
Maps will be available at most of the participating galleries/venues and the day of the event at www.veniceartcrawl.com.
