My site is revolved around promoting visual art, especially Venice beach art. The three buildings on my site, the gallery, shop, and cafe, help artists display art, sell their works, and provide a place for discussion with other artists. While the site promotes art in general, the reoccurring theme of a solid box that is very evident in all three buildings promotes Venice beach art specifically and bridges the buildings together by providing spaces that are exclusive to local artists. Local artists will be able to sign up for these boxes that provides an exclusive gallery space to promote their art, an exclusive shop to help them sell their works, and a private library for research purposes.
