For our fall exhibit, we are focusied on Funk Zone related art. The Funk Zone is a unique area with a long history of arts, crafts and industrial manufacturing. Today the area is full of artists, artisans, who make everything from surfboards to fine California wines. The Funk Zone is home to the area’s highest density of creative individuals and businesses. You are invited to join the mayor in her office from 5 – 6 on 1st Thursday, October 4th to see this interesting and diverse group of works in a variety of media.

We would like to congratulate the winners for this round: Ashleigh Walker, Rica Coulter, David Peacock, Earl Arnold, Skye Gwilliams, Lynne Fogel, and Virginia Babro.
