Venice Heritage Museum: This is Some Place

Apr 11 - Nov 24, 2024  |  11:00AM - 5:00PM

Inaugural Exhibition
On View March 9th through Fall 2024

Venice, California, is a place of real-life world-building, where locals imagine and reimagine their home over and again. The numerous and simultaneous versions of what the area has been—and what it may become—have themselves defined Venice ever since Abbot Kinney ventured to reconstruct Italy’s most serene city here on Pacific shores. This exhibition collects examples across eras showing different ways that Venetians have acted upon the spaces around them to create a place that remains distinct even as it continues to change.
