Emily Winters: Muralist and Activist
Although Emily Winters moved to Venice as an art student in 1963, she feels she grew up there. Though poor and neglected by the city, the community living in the canals was resourceful and supportive of each other by providing childcare or sharing food from personal gardens. Eventually, she and others were forced out or evicted as a result of one of the many waves of gentrification that occurred in Venice. A mural on Dell Avenue and Carroll Canal, was erected by Winters as a tribute to the culture and change she observed while living in the canals.
