VENICE, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hal's Bar & Grill, V-SCAPE, and Missionlines.com are pleased to announce a contest open to students of all ages, anywhere in the world, to create thirty-second videos based on works in theTasteForArt.com exhibition. The inaugural show, hanging in the newly opened Upstairs Gallery at Hal's, is available for viewing online at viralvenicevideos.com.
A "Taste for Art" is a humorous yet serious show whose theme is food and drink in art and film. It draws entirely from works loaned by leading Southern California artists and collectors. From Andy Warhol's iconic Campbell soup cans, to Rob Reiner's classic deli scene in "When Harry Met Sally", to some of today's cutting-edge artists, the exhibition explores a universal theme in painting, printmaking, sculpture, multiples and film.
The 25 pieces in a "Taste for Art" are the inspiration and springboard for our Viral Venice Videos contest. This is about creativity, having fun, and life imitating art. We invite students everywhere to riff on the art and tell their story in thirty seconds.
From its opening in 1987, Hal Frederick's dedication to art and music established Hal's Bar & Grill as a Venice community fine arts landmark. This exhibition is sponsored by Missionlines.com and curated by VSCAPE.org, which has been organizing and curating exhibitions in the Venice - Santa Monica area since 2004.
