Celebrating the Creative Community of Venice.
The Venice Arts Council is publishing a souvenir book “Art Tiles at Venice Beach”. The book is designed to draw attention to the existence of these remarkable tiles that depict a graphic history from 1904 to 2001 of Venice designed by local Venetian artists. This is the result of the Ocean Front Walk renovation project in 2000. The printed reproduction of the hand made art tiles in book form is meant to retain the concept and creative ideas of the project in perpetuity. Currently, three benches and six tiles have been removed from the Ocean Front Walk and the Venice Arts Council Art Tile Rescue Program, part of our Endangered Art Fund, will replace these tiles.
This is a non-profit endeavor to preserve and restore the 22 art tiles on the 11 benches on Ocean Front Walk. The price of the book is $20 each, 64 pages soft cover depicting each of the colorful 22 tiles with adjoining commentary. The book will be available January 7, 2014.
If you wish to be a sponsor for the printing of this book, a $500 contribution will list your business on the Sponsors Map and with coordinating numbers, your business name, address, and contact information on the facing page.
If you wish to contribute less than $500, your name and the name of your business will appear in the book as a Supporter of this project. The proceeds from the sales of this book will fund the maintenance of the tiles and the benches that house them. Your contribution may be considered a tax deduction to a non-profit organization.
