Venice Art Walk & Auctions Celebrates 34th Annual Venice Family Clinic Fundraiser in Partnership with Google Los Angeles
VENICE, CA — The Venice Art Walk & Auctions celebrates its 34th anniversary as the largest art walk in Southern California and community fundraiser to benefit Venice Family Clinic, a community health system that provides quality care to 24,000 low-income, uninsured, and homeless families and individuals on the Westside of Los Angeles. Through an expanded month-long calendar of events, the 2013 Venice Art Walk & Auctions will encompass exclusive artist studio and architecture tours with meet-the-artist opportunities, a silent art auction at Google Los Angeles, biking tours, gallery shows and special exhibitions, as well as live entertainment, food and drinks—all set against the backdrop of beautiful Venice, California.
The 2013 Venice Art Walk and Auctions proudly celebrates the achievements of two signature artists: Larry Bell and John Van Hamersveld. Larry Bell is a contemporary American artist and sculptor whose 40 years of work can be found in the collections of many of the world’s top art aficionados, public spaces, major museums and cultural institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Whitney Museum of American Art; and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. John Van Hamersveld is a renowned graphic designer, illustrator and artist perhaps best known for creating the brilliant and instantly iconic image for “The Endless Summer,” the seminal 1966 surf movie by Bruce Brown. As signature artist, Van Hamersveld created the graphic imagery and logo for the 2013 Venice Art Walk & Auctions.
The curatorial committee for the 2013 Venice Art Walk & Auctions is composed of influential leaders in the art, architecture and philanthropy communities including Robert Berman, Laddie John Dill, Andrea Fiuczynski, John Geresi, David Hertz, Constance Lawton, Sam Lubell, Leo Marmol, Laura Maslon, Eliza Osborne, Barbara Schwan, Ali Subotnick, and Billie Milam Weisman.
