The December Venice Art Crawl appeared to be a success, with solid crowds braving the (relative) cold and darkness (no argument there) to come down to the beach and enjoy some local art. This month had numerous exhibitions, including a cluster of video installations on Market Street, collectively called December Lights. The street was illuminated with numerous video projections lighting up buildings from rooftops across the street, including an interactive projection of the Nintendo classic, Donkey Kong, which participants could play by holding up a cutout of Mario and running his shadow up the wall. Pretty fun! The evening flew by, and we eventually found ourselves at an afterparty before suddenly waking up the next morning with a dull throbbing in our heads. A reminder that a good time was had. Looking forward to next month!
