Venice Art Walk & Auctions to Raise Funds for the Uninsured
Skywave House exterior.
VENICE, CA.- With public awareness of America’s health care crisis at an all-time high, the largest free clinic in the country, Venice Family Clinic, announces the line-up for its Venice Art Walk & Auctions event series, May 22 and 23, 2010. The centerpiece is the Venice Art Walk & Auctions itself – which the Los Angeles Times calls “the granddaddy of them all” – featuring more than 50 artists’ studios and special exhibits, as well as a 400-piece silent art auction. It is complemented by three brand-new, separately ticketed Art & Architecture Tours – one exploring Rustic Canyon, another focused on architects’ own homes in Venice and Santa Monica, and a third wending its way through Venice’s famous walk streets and canals. All proceeds benefit Venice Family Clinic’s free health care services for the low-income uninsured, making this the feel-good, and feel-better, event of the year.
