Coachella Alternative, Music Connects Us: Photography & Art Show A Venice Art Crawl Fundraiser Event at the new Hal's Bar & Grill.

By Laura Medina

Does the idea of partying out in the desert burns you?  Or, had you been "burnt" at Coachella; sunburns, someone snagged your swag bag, or you recovered your stolen cell phone this weekend?

Why don't you party closer to home, closer to the beach, and closer to the refreshing beach breezes, while providing some sweet relief to a good cause.

Thursday, April 20, Venice Art Crawl will present its 7th annual Anniversary Fundraiser event Music Connects Us: Photography & Art Show. The event will take place at the Runway Playa Vista, 12746 W. Jefferson Blvd, Playa Vista, 90066, transforming a 3,800 square foot space into an urban art installation. Over 70 local and international artists will be featured such as Miles Regis; Spaik; Plastic Jesus, Guy Webster; Balloonski; and more!

It's like Coachella, without the selfish jerks and jerk-ettes.

Even though it'll be at the roomier, newer,..and much cleaner Runway in  12746 W. Jefferson Blvd, Playa Vista, 90066, Playa Vista, Venice Art Crawl has not forgotten its roots.  It may Playa Vista, "Silicon Beach," but its heart is still Venice of yore, artists.  They need the help now to keep Venice's artistic free-spirit alive.

Just like Coachella, you got your "general admission" and your "VIP."

For  "general admission," you pay “Art Show” alone for $40.  This includes portion-controlled hors d'oeuvres and some sips.

The $200 "VIP"  tickets gives you “VIP Dinner and Art Show” package for a sit down dinner at the new Hal's Bar & Grill Playa Vista.

For $200, you get:

Jazz singer Antonia Bennett, daughter of legendary singer Tony Bennett. Meanwhile, the artwork of Michael Paul Glaser will be displayed at Hal’s Bar & Grill.

The sit-down dinner is...

For those who can only afford the $40 (especially after you're done "Coachella-ing"), you wouldn't feel cheated...

General Admission will get one heck of a party...because artists like to party, too.

      The Venice Art Crawl continues its junction of art and community at Runway,
         transforming a 3,800 square foot live-shop-work space into an urban art installation.
        Photographs featuring artists of rock and roll, hip hop and jazz will be displayed
        throughout the building. Guests can walk through various colorful environments
        filled with DJs, pop up musicians, light shows, mini performances,
        installations, live art, fashion statements and other fresh experiences
         that will electrify all five senses.
