About this event Following the Venice Heritage Museum project’s successful spring Indiegogo fundraising launch, we are hosting a group photo exhibition outdoors at VICE Media in Venice that will transport viewers through the many eras of Venice’s famed Boardwalk, from the city’s founding at the turn of the century through the present day.
Online bidding starts now & runs through the in-person event this Sat, Sept. 25. Now is your chance to take home a unique piece of Venice's history — from timeless images of The Doors to Dogtown icon, Jay Adams, and contemporary stills that capture the heart of our city — there's something for everyone and we're thrilled to share each print with you!
Plus, we'll be adding more images to the sale as we get closer to the event, so keep checking back for new reveals.
Limited tickets are available for a VIP Meet & Greet reception with photographers Henry Diltz and Estevan Oriol prior to the exhibition from 3:00-5:00 pm.All proceeds from your ticket purchase directly benefit the Museum project, and contributions are tax-deductible to the maximum extent possible.
The event will feature additional prints and apparel for sale to support the Museum, sounds by DJ Buck, refreshments, food carts, and more!
We have already raised over 65% of our goal to fund Phase 1 of our business plan to build the Venice Heritage Museum! We have conditional approval from the City of LA to install the Museum at Venice-of-America Centennial Park, and only need to raise $40,000 more to meet the qualifications to obtain the lease. The money we raise will directly fund the restoration of our original 1905 Pacific Electric Red Car trolleyto house the Museum, and help us transport the Red Car for installation at the park. All proceeds from the silent auction and event will be applied towards this goal.
