September's Funk Zone Art Walk, 2019

Please join us on Friday, September 20th 5pm-8pm for the Funk Zone Art Walk™, coordinated by The Arts Fund, in partnership with VOICE Magazine. Maps will be available at The Arts Fund (Location 1). 

The Arts Fund started the Funk Zone Art Walk over 5 years ago to highlight the neighborhood’s vibrant artistic community and support local businesses. The Funk Zone Art Walk occurs on the 3rd Friday of every other month. Visit for more information.

On Friday, September 20th, 16 artist studios, galleries, and art-centric venues open their doors to the public from 5-8pm, making it the ideal opportunity to casually experience the Funk Zone’s art scene.

At any given venue, visitors can expect events such as exhibition openings, artist receptions, open studios, insightful art lectures or demonstrations, live music and performances, pop-up artist booths, beer and wine tastings, and various other interactive activities.
