When people around the world think of Venice, Calif.three descriptors immediately jump to mind including “funky,” “eclectic,” and “artsy.”
Driving through Venice and Santa Monica, one can not help but notice the constant conversation via art churning all around us daily. So this week, we decided to ride out with our photographer Jorge M. Vargas, Jr., and capture a sliver of that diversity of color, style and subject matter. As if to make our point, we concentrated only along Lincoln Boulevard, which had more than enough for us to feast our eyes on.
