Scheduled for this weekend, May 19-20, the Venice Artwalk and Auction is sure to be included among the year’s highlights for art and architecture aficionados. The main event, the silent art auction and community celebration, will provide a rare opportunity to party at the Google Los Angeles campus–famous for the binocular façade designed by Frank Gehry. Of course, the Venice Art Walk and Auction also includes art and architecture tours of a selection of art studios and architecturally significant homes. This year’s tours feature artists’ and architects’ homes east of Lincoln (including the homes of Blue McRight & Warren Wagner and Cliff Garten & Molly Reid, in addition to the Steven Ehrlich-designed Perry Farrell house), as well as homes between Pacific and Abbot Kinney (designed by architects Steven Shortridge, John Frane, David Ritch and Damian LeMons). The “Venture into Venice Art Studio Tours” will also highlight artist enclaves around Sunset Avenue and special art exhibits.
The event is hosted by Google for the benefit of the Venice Family Clinic. For more information on the schedule of event, visit the Venice Artwalk and Auction website.
