Venice Beach- Graffiti Pit is an urban display of evolving art. Set beside the skate park just off of the main boardwalk on Ocean Front Walk, it is a colorful array of graffiti artwork created by a community of artists.
For the price of a permit and signing an artist agreement stipulating no hate speech, violence, pornography, drug or gang references and profanity- artist can ‘rent’ time and space to express themselves on one of several walls. Time is limited and art space is recycled allowing artist to paint over works.
Originally conceived of by the ICU organization, the Venice Art Walls or Pits are what remain of the Venice Pavilion structure when it was torn down in 1999, as part of the Oceanfront Walk refurbishment.
