The Arts Fund Presents...

Long Days, Short Year by Nelson Parrish

at 121 Santa Barbara Street

The Arts Fund is pleased to announce the completion of Long Days, Short Year for the Funk Zone Public Art Program. We'd like to thank Mesa Lane partners for funding this project and being early supporters of the program. Special thanks to Milpas Rentals for the equipment.

Long Days, Short Year is a translation of color, motion and the passion for the hustle. Inspired by Minimalist artists, Santa Barbara light and geography, and the history of national parks the pieces pulls threads from disparate dialogues to weave an abstract narrative designed to engage and inspire. The first of the artist’s career, the mural was created solely using Montana Cans spray paint, purposefully to connect and challenge the discourse surrounding “street art.”
