Venice Arts will also feature an Artist’s Talk with Brett Van Ort on Thursday, December 6, 2012 at 7:00pm which will offer viewers the special opportunity to discuss inspiration and ideas behind this poignant photography with the artist himself.
Venice Arts ignites, expands, and transforms the lives of Los Angeles’ low-income youth through photography and film education, and uses its participatory storytelling practices to amplify the voices of underrepresented communities around the world.
This mission grew out of our founding dream: to create a vibrant, neighborhood arts center committed to education and community-building through the arts. Twenty-four years later, we are proud to have been recognized, nationally and locally, as one of the preeminent, community-based arts organizations in Los Angeles.
Our three core programs—Art Mentoring & Education, Gallery & Public Programs, and Participatory Documentary Programs—offer high-impact education to low-income youths, while fostering a space for artists, community members, and families to interact through a regular series of exhibitions, film screenings, and public programs.
The Venice Arts Gallery is also available for community rentals.
