At LACMA “Edward Biberman, Abbot Kinney and the Story of Venice” shows the recent conservation of the mural “Abbot Kinney and the Story of Venice”, painted by Los Angeles artist Edward Biberman in 1941. 
It is “New Deal–era art” about Venice in the context of a narrative about the artist’s long-term engagement with public art and fascination with Southern California culture. 

It’s part of a larger exhibit on Venice history. Very cool.
