For more than 40 years, Venice Family Clinic Art Walk & Auction has been an iconic community tradition in Los Angeles, harnessing the power of the local, national and international art community to advance greater health equity. Since its inception, Venice Art Walk has raised more than $23 million to provide vital health care to people from across Los Angeles County who might otherwise not have a medical home. This year’s event incorporated both in-person and online ways to engage with the artworks and support the Clinic’s mission.

As always, the centerpiece of the annual event was a contemporary art silent auction, which was live at artsy.net/veniceartwalk from April 15 to May 1. The auction featured over 200 art works by established, mid-career and emerging artists, including Gary Baseman, Andrea Bowers, Rosson Crow, FriendsWithYou, Lauren Greenfield, KAWS, Ed Ruscha, Analia Saban, Brenna Youngblood and many more.

We also proudly offered an in-person experience to view and bid on art works at our first-ever Venice Art Walk Gallery at Santa Monica Place (395 Santa Monica Pl – Level 1, East Court, Santa Monica, CA 90401). The Venice Art Walk Gallery was open daily between April 15 and May 1 from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m. 

As another exciting addition to this year’s event, artists from the NFT market were invited to participate in the first-ever NFT auction to benefit Venice Family Clinic. On May 13, new works dropped on Nifty Gateway by Tomaso Albertini, Bryan Brinkman, Ninocence, Parin Heidari and Waambat. 

There’s no better time and no better way to invest in art and invest in health.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any questions about the auction that are not answered below, please contact our team at LWatts@mednet.ucla.edu or (310) 343-3388.

A: Artsy does not hold bid-offs and operates on a first-come first-serve basis. Example: If there are two final bids at $500 at the close of auction, the person that puts in their bid first at $500 will win the piece.

A: We encourage you to place your maximum bid instead of the next incremental bid to increase your chances of winning the piece. It does not mean that you will you pay that price but it allows Artsy to bid automatically for you, up to your maximum bid, to maintain your position as the highest bidder.

A: This means that there is another bidder that has a higher maximum bid than yours. You can either keep increasing your increment levels or consider placing your highest maximum bid to see if it beats theirs.

A: If you are the leading bidder, you will get an email saying that you are currently the high bidder. You will receive both text and email notifications if you’ve been outbid that will directly link you to the piece should you wish to continue bidding.
