The Venice People's Centennial Celebration continues at SPARC (Social & Public Art Resource Center) with "Divas of Venice," a month long art installation and series of musical concerts, film, poetry, politics, readings and presentations, including the "Venus of Venice" awards, a pink slip progressive wear fashion show, and performance piece, reflecting the diversity and uniqueness of extraordinary Venice women.
The Divas of Venice shows close this Saturday, August 27th at 7:00 pm with one of our founding members of CODEPINK, Political Diva, Jodie Evans- along with special guests (the spirited musician Michelle Shocked, and outrageous comedian Citizen Reno), a pink slip fashion show, and performance piece the "Election Hygienists of CODEPINK." This will be a night to celebrate and honor the creativity and dedication of our favorite activist divas, as well as their chance to share their talents and inspirations with us.
Jodie is back from Camp Casey in Crawford, Texas for this night only...
So please join us and hear first-hand accounts of life and action outside the Bush Ranch.
"Divas of Venice" is sponsored in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Liberty Hill Foundation/Robert & Heidi Greenwald Fund, Susan Adelman and Claudio Llanos, Edward Ferrer, Don Geagan, Linda Lucks, Michael McGuffin, and Linda Shusett.
All events are free and open to the public. SPARC is located at 685 N. Venice Boulevard in Venice.
