Venice in the Gables

Public Arts Initiative Turns the Gables into Venezia

June 2018

In a celebration of the completion of the city’s Street Scape Project, which widened the sidewalks of Miracle Mile and turned Giralda Avenue into a pedestrian promenade, the city curated a public art project: Venice in the Gables. For the next month or so, 33 Venetian palines – aka gondola posts – will adorn the downtown. Each painted by a different artist and sponsored by a different business or organization, they will be auctioned off for charity when they come down. 

Here is a glimpse of a dozen of the colorful posts. If you want to your conduct your own scavenger hunt you can get a complete list of locations from the city at
