Every two years, the Venice Biennale brings together the world's most interesting artists, musicians, and performers for a unique, high-energy gathering. This October, Rex offers a chance to immerse yourself in the Art and Music Biennales, with concerts, in-house events, and plenty of opportunities to engage with the artists, your fellow travelers, and Venice. Among the resident artists are longtime Rex supporters Nicki Bluhm, Tim Bluhm, and John Kadlecik. Join us October 8-18 for fun, inspiration, and grand adventure, made possible by Innovative Giving Enhancement, who chose Rex as the partner beneficiary for this experiential residency.

Following the Fare Thee Well shows, Rex board member Trixie Garcia reflected on the reunion, the community, the gathering, and the possibilities in an interview with Glide Magazine. Asked about Rex's future, she said, "Of course [Fare Thee Well] gives Rex more longevity. It broadens our whole reach for sure, and it's a real treat to see a lot of people who were born since Jerry died at the shows and totally geeking out about the Grateful Dead. Another thing that was great about the show was the whole multi-generational thing that was happening, you know, people coming with their grandkids or their mom."
