Venice Beach Biennial

In the summer of 2012, while the art world flocked to Venice for the Biennale, Venice Beach held a different sort of art fair. From July 13–15, local artists took over the famous boardwalk to display their work to thousands of beachgoers — temporarily erasing any distinction between "high art" and "street art."

I oversaw the design of this event, working with Hammer curator Ali Subotnick. The "funky pussy" illustration was adapted from artwork created by veteran boardwalk artist Arthure "Art" Moore. Materials included hand-printed silk-screened posters, apparel, giant balloons, and printed ephemera.
