The Legendary Women Artists of Venice Award was established in honor of Women’s History Month. The awards recognize the contribution of women to the arts and their profound impact on society. The awards are presented by the Venice Art Crawl and Venice Chamber of Commerce.
Legendary Women Artists of Venice recipients meet rigorous criteria of considerable accomplishment and contribution to the Arts and Venice Beach community — each one has over 10 years of experience represented by their professional efforts, work, vision, and commitment. The award anticipates a lifetime of achievement for its recipients and the building of a new sisterhood in the Arts.
Equity, Inclusion & Parity aren’t just buzzwords or requirements for corporate hires. Art is an expression of the outer world. How are we storytelling and who’s controlling the narrative? It’s time to listen to the comprehensive experiences of our shared world, through art.
