About venicebeachpoetsmonument

We are working with the Beyond Baroque Foundation on the restoration of the Venice Beach Poetry Walls. These works have been repeatedy covered with tagging, and then eroded by the high pressure water used to blast off the tagging, and then painted over with thick layers of grey anti-tagging paint. We are seeking an aesthetic and technical solution to their erosion. We also want to create collateral literature such as a walking tour guide to Venice Beach Poetry, Google Map, Flash Tour. We need your involvement, contributions, and donations.
