You’ll need something to do Saturday night if you’re still standing after the Mardi Gras Afterparty! A few options for you here:

Start the evening out with an Opening Reception at Venice Arts from 5-8pm. Presenting: Six Shooters: A Photographic Conversation prompts an innovative approach to narrative, exposes the process of collaborative art-making, and engages viewers in creating for themselves a story from the visual associations on display. 1702 Lincoln Blvd. Venice, CA 90291

Return of It Came from Venice! is a unique tribute to Sponto, a Venice Legend who was a true supporter of the arts community here.
