For more than 40 years, Venice Family Clinic Art Walk & Auction has been a community tradition in Venice. The annual event combines a silent auction of contemporary art and a community celebration of engaging activities for the public, including hands-on art workshops, live music, a craft beer and wine garden, live music, food trucks, and a family fun zone.
In 2020, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we postponed the community celebration and held the silent auction exclusively online.
Thanks to our artists and our supporters, our online art auction nearly sold out, and this year’s event raised more than $700,000 in critical funds. Since its inception, this signature fundraiser has raised more than $23 million to provide vital health care to people who might otherwise have nowhere to get the help they need to get well and stay healthy.
The auction featured more than 190 works by nationally recognized contemporary artists, including John Baldessari, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Corinne Chaix, Zoe Crosher, Danny First, FriendsWithYou, Channing Hansen, Lynn Hanson, Kenny Harris, Claudy Jongstra, Toba Khedoori, Jens Lucking, T. Kelly Mason, Ed Ruscha, Analia Saban, Kim Schoenstadt, and The Haas Brothers. Click here to view all of our participating artists.
