Closing Party Sponto Gallery Saturday Night!

Venice Event Art & Music Tribute to SpontoMake sure to catch the last blast at the Sponto Gallery art show extravaganza this Saturday night! The popup gallery in its former space named after Mark “Sponto” Kornfeld who nurtured  the creative scene in Venice –  a mashup of visual art, spoken word and music, all of which has taken place since the opening on March 1 that featured local visual artist’s and their art and musicians to liven up the scene. On Saturday, March 8 an amazing array of spoken word artists delighted our ears and sparked our senses with original poetry/spoken word readings from and about the Venice Beat Poets.

This Saturday, March 14 brings the closing of this Venice Art show which has brought much nostalgia to those who attended, yet also rebounded the community spirit that has been sporadic in the past five years.
