PUBLIC ART

Venice Area Beautification Inc. exists only because of the essential volunteers and sponsors that help VABI achieve the goals to make Venice a beautiful place to live, work, and play! 

Description of Artwork:  Venice is growing.  Its murals help to capture and define its rich narrative, people, and vast opportunities to live, work and play.  Well-known as a retirees’ paradise, Venice now attracts more families with elementary-aged children and young professionals, with many diverse interests, and our population is set to increase dramatically each year. 

The next mural VABI commissions will reflect this change while celebrating the arts in all its forms:  live theater, visual arts, dance, music.   The mural will serve as an inspirational gateway to the Historic District and a signpost to the beach and other amenities Venice has to offer.  The VABI Public Arts Committee seeks a fresh, innovative approach for Venice’s next story-high, block-length mural, which will face the front and lobby doors of its award-winning Venice Theatre, the second-largest community theatre in the nation, now entering its 72nd season.  It is our hope that the artist who sees this space begins to take Venice in a new direction.
Supplies:  Please break down your costs for supplies, time, price per sq. ft. and any other expenses with a total at the bottom.  Please indicate if future touch-ups are included or the amount for it to be touched up as needed.


Publicity:  Covered by local newspapers and VABI with the City of Venice.
