Venice Arts Gallery Left Wall West of Lincoln Project by Ruth Chase copy

August 2015 – August 2017
Documents life growing up in Venice, CA and the powerful insights that come from street smarts in a multi media installation of paintings, audio video, social media engagement, the Venice Tribute Wall and written biographies. Awarded a grant for an Individual Artist through the Carl Jacobs Foundation.

The project was more than two years in the making and involved over 300 participants, each of whom was chosen to convey different perspectives and a broad spectrum of experiences. Like Chase, these subjects grew up and attended school in Venice. Chase worked in ongoing collaboration with each individual to create painted portraits.
