(EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19) March Funk Zone Art Walk™ - Free Community Event

Updated: Mar 13, 2020

The Arts Fund has been carefully following the rapidly-changing news about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). On March 11, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California public health officials issued an updated policy on large gatherings to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19:

The state’s public health experts have determined that gatherings should be postponed or canceled across the state until at least the end of March. Non-essential gatherings must be limited to no more than 250 people, while smaller events can proceed only if the organizers can implement social distancing of 6 feet per person. Gatherings of individuals who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 should be limited to no more than 10 people, while also following social distancing guidelines.

In accordance with this announcement, The Arts Fund has decided to cancel the upcoming Funk Zone Art Walk scheduled for March 20, 5pm-8pm. We have additionally postponed our last community gallery exhibition until later this year. This decision has been made with the safety and health of our community as our top priority. The well-being of our community is of utmost importance during this time. We appreciate your understanding and hope these actions will make a meaningful difference as we all face this difficult situation together. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to The Arts Fund at
