Venice Art Festival Posters

30+ Years of Amazing Images

Each November, the Annual Downtown Venice Art Festival, organized by Howard Alan Events and coordinated with Venice MainStreet, is held. A poster competition is held in advance of the festival, in which local artists enter their works, inspired by a stipulated poster theme, and compete to win the distinction of having their work selected to be the featured image. The judges are comprised of Venice MainStreet board members and Design Committee members. The posters and t-shirts featuring the design are sold at the festival and at future festivals, as well as online.

Although many have sold out, several are still available for purchase. They are a great way to showcase local art in your home or make the perfect gift. Proceeds from the sale of these posters benefit Venice MainStreet. Enjoy this virtual exhibit of prize-winning images over the past 30+ years!
