THE ART WALK IS GOING VIRTUAL!
The Arts Fund is excited to share that the Funk Zone Art Walk™ is back—in a reimagined, COVID-safe format.
How the Funk Zone Art Walk™ Artist Spotlight works:
Three times per year, we will be Spotlighting artists and businesses in the Funk Zone. You’ll be able to visit our Spotlight Pages to explore artists and their works virtually, watch brief interviews (virtual walks) between artists and members of The Arts Fund, or download the Spotlight map and visit at your own leisure.

Funk Zone Art Walk's History
The Arts Fund began the Funk Zone Art Walk™ in 2013 to highlight the neighborhood's vibrant artistic community. The walk occured on the odd months of the year, on the third Friday of the month.
Around 20 artist studios, galleries, and art-centric venues combined efforts to coordinate each new exhibition opening on the same Friday night, opening their doors to the public from 5-8pm.
At any given venue, visitors experienced events such as exhibition openings and artist receptions, insightful art lectures, live music and performances, pop-up artist booths, beer and wine tastings, and various other interactive activities, making it the ideal way to casually experience the Funk Zone’s cultural explosion. This community event hosted hundreds of guests and supported local artists, galleries, and businesses.
