Venice Public Art Walls @ The Venice Boardwalk

Lazy strolls along the Venice Beach boardwalk let us revisit the many famous Venice murals.
But take a detour off the boardwalk at Winward Avenue, walk out onto the warm sand, and you will catch Venice's fabulous mural show in progress:  graffiti artists at their craft working with incredible colors and designs.

The Venice Public Art Walls   (formerly "The Graffiti Walls") can be painted by just about anyone, which is why all sides of the long walls and structures are always covered with an amazingly diverse collection of graffiti styles.  The artists' works have been photographed throughout the years and archived by community organizations.

Who can paint?  Just about anyone!
