Dani-Dodge-Venice-Art-Exhbit-VICA-Silent-AuctionAre you wondering what the Silent Auction is all about? ViCA, a non profit, is starting a movement for  a Venice Arts Complex that includes affordable housing for Venice artists in addition to a museum. While it may sound like a pie in the sky dream to some, in reality this has already happened throughout the country, and as close as Ventura. What that means is that there is a blueprint for developing this type of project.


The Silent Auction kicks off the seed money fund (ViCA is the recipient organization), needed  to get the project off the ground. Both Juri Koll from ViCA and Artist Sandy Bleifer (an artist in the exhibit) have done much of the research  to find out how to get it started, including identifying possible locations, discussing the project with local developers and locating the developer, PLACE that has built these projects.
