The Scene

The Funk Zone ARTwalk is a bi-monthly event initiated to highlight the neighborhood's vibrant artistic community. 

Around 20 artist studios, galleries, and art-centric venues combine efforts to coordinate each new exhibition opening on the same Friday night, open their doors to the public from 5-8pm. At any given venue, visitors can expect 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.
