I am so excited because this will be my first Venice Art Crawl. I am looking forward to seeing all the different artists’ work, especially Plastic Jesus. One piece of his I find especially profound and timely, is the Kanye West statue, named “False Idol”.
Another artist that that catches my eye is Balloonski. I have seen artwork made out of Legos and Jelly Beans, but never have I seen balloon art. It’s fun and playful. He also uses mixed media of spray paint and stencils to create images of balloons within a painting like his work on a pistol. I’m also very excited to check out the street art, especially the “unstudied,” counter-cultural works.
I can’t wait to check out the new Hal’s Bar & Grill located in the heart of Runway at Playa Vista. At the dinner, the Hal’s will host jazz singer Antonia Bennett, daughter of legendary singer Tony Bennett and Broadway belter Gail Boggs. Meanwhile, the artwork of Michael Paul Glaser (of Starsky & Hutch fame) will be displayed at Hal’s Bar & Grill.
