In it’s 40th year of charitable work the Venice Family Clinic Art Walk and Auction is back again with the goal of upping their ante. Past figures who have all donated include Lita Albuquerque, Peter Alexander, Charles Arnoldi, John Baldessari, Larry Bell, Billy Al Bengston, Laddie John Dill, Jean Edelstein, Robert Graham, Ed Moses, and Ed Ruscha.

Through this project the clinics have gone from 1 space to 12 scattered throughout West LA and serving upwards 27,000 people in need. At the core of those in need are women and children who make up 70% of those we are assisted. 

This year sees Laura Owens take on the position as Signature Artist Honoree, while previous honoree Barbara Kruger continues on to host committee.

All works will be available for online preview and bidding on Paddle8
