The Venice Art Crawl is an organization by and for the people and was established August 2010. VAC is now part of the Venice Chamber of Commerce and wants to share, inspire and promote collaboration within the Venice populace through mixers and art events hosted by local businesses and artists’ studios.  VAC’s goal is to foster and reinvigorate the creativity that has historically made Venice such a vibrant and spirited community. #veniceartcrawl
