Strangers & Palms

8663 Venice Blvd – Enter through the alley

7-10PM · Saturday, Dec 7th 2019

A hazy sky breaks, casting dramatic shadows of skateboarders as they weave between beachgoers. Drawn by rustic beach vibes, the scattered crowds pass over miles of ocean front concrete.

Color, skin, surfing, and a wildly bizarre boardwalk are known staples of Venice. Outside the occasional crazy, however, is a deep calm. With the pacific beach as a front yard, time moves a little slower and the temperature hovers noticeably cooler.

As the sun goes from a dramatic glow into an orange blanket of light, people rush to the beach to soak it in. Strangers from different worlds become silhouettes equally mixed with the palms.
