For the fourth year in a row, Venice Arts will participate in the International Los Angeles Photographic Art Exposition photo l.a., with an exhibition showcasing new work by our Advanced Studies photography students.

We're thrilled to be once again be in the company of so many incredible local, national, and international photography galleries and organizations exhibiting at photo l.a., arguably the premiere photographic exposition in the Los Angeles area. This invaluable experience gives our Advanced Studies students the chance to make professional connections with artists, collectors, and gallerists, as well as see their work in the larger context of contemporary photography. This is just one of the many ways that we develop young artists, exposing students to a myriad of creative and professional opportunities in the arts.
