Community

The Venice Place values giving back to the community by providing assistance to local nonprofit groups and schools. It is proud to be a long-time supporter of numerous organizations including Westminster Elementary, Venice Family Clinic, Venice Community Housing, Venice Arts, Venice Pride, WAVE Awards, Venice Art Walk, and others.

The Venice Pop Up Park is a creative outdoor office and relaxation space open to the public for free use Tuesdays-Fridays from 11am-4pm. It’s hosted many successful events for organizations such as Animo Charter High, the Boys and Girls Club, the Children’s Lifesaving Foundation, Gather for Good, and Girls PACT. For more information, see venicepopuppark.com.

And if you visited the Pop Up Park in 2017 or early 2018, you may have seen Venice-based, national public artist Robin Murez working on a full-scale, Venice-themed, bicycle-propelled Flying Carousel. The Venice Place Project sponsored her work by providing studio space in the Pop Up Park until she needed to move to an enclosed studio. Murez and the carousel project were featured in Yo Venice 2017. If you are curious about her project or want to be involved, you can learn more at veniceflyingcarousel.com.

The Sculpture Gardens Nursery, which closed in 2017, was developed into a lovely public garden sanctuary for all to enjoy. Stay tuned as the side area is transformed into a place to eat lunch and enjoy an Abutilon grove that will commemorate the former owner and founder of the garden, Dr. Jerry Rowitch.

Annual Venice Holiday Sign Lighting - The Venice Place is proud to join the community in supporting the annual changing of the lights on the historic VENICE Sign to a festive red and green.
