The Venice Art Walls need your help. The program that issues free permits to artists to paint on the walls is in desperate need of funding. City of L.A. funding for this program has been cut due to the severe city budget crises. Come help to preserve this important cultural and historic landmark and the spirit of free expression in Venice. All of the funds raised goes to pay the on-site supervisors that work in the area.

An amazing group of talented artists from Los Angeles are donating original paintings, prints, photography and sculpture to this auction to raise funds for this program. Although much of the work is donated by prominent L.A. graffiti artists, or artists doing street influenced art, many of the pieces are not done in a graffiti style. Several artists work in a more traditional style working with brush. There are also several photographers print makers and sculptors. Opening bids start very low.

$10 Admission at the door
