Created By: Venice Public Art
Venice is not your ordinary beach town, nor just another place with expensive boutiques and upscale restaurants. Mr. Abbot Kinney created Venice of America in 1904 as a mash up of Venice Italy and Coney Island.
Main Street, and many others, were once canals. And Venice had wild and wonderful giant roller coasters, fun houses, a salt water plunge, an enourmous dance hall, and even live camel rides.
This and more is all true and comes to life with the turn or spin or magical glance at one of the dozen sculptures I've installed along streets of Venice, CA.
Come discover the sculptures and enjoy the fascinating stories they bring to life.
With the clever toss of a coin Mr. Abbot Kinney brought his fantastic vision to life. It was a mash up of Coney Island and Venice Italy.
