Thank you to the curators, artists, and hundreds of visitors who passed through the doors of Beyond Baroque for the “A History of Venice” exhibition! The spirit of Venice was alive and well this September, and we can’t wait to share the next event with you. Stay tuned by signing up for our newsletter below.
A living history
Envisioned for the Venice Heritage Museum project is the city’s first-ever history museum and campus that will include as its centerpiece a renovated Pacific Electric Red Car trolley (circa 1905). Phase II of the campus will feature a replica of the original Tokio Red Car substation that served Venice residents from 1904 to 1950. The substation was so nicknamed because of its distance from Venice’s business district along Windward Avenue.
The initial museum space is visualized to be located in Venice of America Centennial Park, just east of the Venice – Abbot Kinney Memorial Branch Library and immediately west of Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
