True Believers! In FunkZoneopolis the forces of evil are hatching a scheme to rid the world of art. Standing between them are the mild-mannered superheroes of The Arts Fund, gallerists and workers during the day, crime-fighting art superheroes at night! Because with great art comes great responsibility. But they alone can't answer the ArtSignal when it flashes in the sky above Yanonali! They need your help to join in the fight!! From mentoring young art heroes to getting their word out through Funk Zone murals while maintaining the gallery art-cave, POP! BANG! POW! will help support The Arts Fund’s mission to bring the work of local artists to the people of Santa Barbara County.
Translation: Since 1983, The Arts Fund has been dedicated to fostering the arts in Santa Barbra County. Our Community Gallery in the Funk Zone hosts guest curators from the community and exhibits the work of emerging and mid-career artists. Our county-wide Teen Arts Mentorship is influential in inspiring and developing Santa Barbara’s next generation of professional artists. The Arts Fund continues to spearhead efforts to make art thrive in the Funk Zone, coordinating the Art Walk and myriad projects of public art programming. To accomplish all this, we depend on the generosity of sponsors such as you – individuals, businesses and foundations.
