‘Venice is for Lovers’ tagline of latest Venice mural by Jonas Never...

A new mural by artist Jonas Never with the tagline “Venice is for Lovers’ was completed on Tuesday on a utility box outside The Venice Whaler restaurant in Venice. The black-and-white mural with a tinge of turquoise showed a scuba diver in vintage gear being kissed by a brunette in a white bikini while holding hands. It was the latest mural by Never to adorn the walls of Venice with other notable works including the Arnold Schwarzenegger mural in the 1800 block of Speedway Avenue and the Touch Of Venice mural on the side of Danny’s Restaurant on Windward Avenue. -Venice Dispatch This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License Check out Venice Dispatch on...

Venice Director Nancy Hower Gains Fast Laughs with Hulu Show ‘Quick Draw’...

By Paul Chavez, Venice Dispatch The halcyon days of summer inched closer to ending Monday with the season finale of the hilarious Western comedy Quick Draw, an Hulu original series co-created, co-written and directed by Venice resident Nancy Hower. The eight-episode season launched Aug. 15 and stars co-creator and co-writer John Lehr as new Sheriff John Henry Hoyle, a proud graduate of Harvard University who in 1875 employs the emerging science of forensics to the small, unruly town of Great Bend, Kansas. The show’s title refers to Hoyle’s speed and accuracy with his revolver, but also could describe the pace of the ribald jokes delivered in first-rate improv style.
