The 39th Venice Family Clinic’s Art Walk & Auctions, the largest art walk in SoCal, supports Venice Family Clinic’s important role in providing quality health care to people in need. Here you can enjoy free access to the city’s internationally-renowned art scene and all winning bids in the silent auction raise vital funds that directly impact the lives of people in need of health care. The fundraiser features exhibitions, studio tours and a silent auction along with engaging community activations from live art exhibits curated by artist Bert Rodriguez to guided art workshops, live music and craft beer & wine garden, dog daycare and bike valet. This year’s lead sponsors are Sony Pictures Entertainment and Frederick R. Weisman Philanthropic Foundation. For a $50 donation, guests enjoy special access to dozens of artists’ studios. During a particularly tumultuous time for health care, this year’s auction is more important than ever and will include the works of 250 artists including such luminaries as John Baldessari, Gary Baseman, Ed Ruscha and Alison Saar as well as emerging talent, with the goal of exceeding the $800,000 raised last year.
