The Funk Zone Neighborhood Association and the Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative will celebrate the richness and diversity of Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone on October 19, 2013. The second annual Funk Zone Arts Festival will be a neighborhood-wide day of events across this unique arts, business, and industrial district.  Explore the locally-owned businesses, galleries, studios, and restaurants that inspired journalist Charles Donolan to deem this area“the new capital of hip.”

Santa Barbara locals may know of the burgeoning development of this oceanfront neighborhood, stretching from State to Garden Streets and tucked between the 101 and the beach. Packed into 11 square blocks are historic marine structures, industrial lots, and houses that have been transformed into some of the hottest destinations in the city. Explore the area that Noozhawk predicts is“quickly becoming the most exciting draw on the South Coast.”

New to the neighborhood? Let an experienced eye introduce you to the Funk Zone with ArchitecTours. Join an anticipated 10,000 people along the Urban Wine Trail, meet Santa Barbara’s renowned community of artists and gallerists, and learn what puts the funk in the Funk Zone.

Current participants include AMASS Gallery, the Art Crawl, the Arts Fund, Cabana Home, CMND-Z, the Santa Barbara Art Foundry, GONE Gallery, Green House Studios, Koplin/Levin Studio, Karl Kras Design Studio, Le Chambre Photographique, Lark, Lucky Penny, the Lights Project, Pianos on State, Metropulos Fine Food, MichaelKate Interiors, Reds, the Surf Museum, wall space gallery, and Youth Interactive. More participants are being added daily.

Cross-Country Road Trip of Handmade Artists’ Books Stops at Two Local Venues

Locations:

June 18, 2013 – This summer, Steven Peterman, co-founder of the Sketchbook Project, and Sara Peterman, director of the Brooklyn Art Library, are hitting the road to share the stories behind the Sketchbook Project with communities across North America. The husband-and-wife duo set out for adventure in the Mobile Library?their custom-built bookmobile?along with a selection of 4,500 sketchbooks from the permanent collection. Covering more than 10,000 miles and 32 cities in just four months, they are lucky enough to include Santa Barbara on their itinerary on July 31 and August 1.

The Sketchbook Project is a global, crowd-sourced art project and traveling exhibition. Since 2006, the Sketchbook Project has encouraged participants from all walks of life to fill the pages of a blank sketchbook. The results are cataloged in the Brooklyn Art Library and shared with the public in venues around the world. The collection currently includes more than 26,000 sketchbooks representing nearly 8,000 cities worldwide.

On July 31, 5 – 9 pm, the Mobile Library will be at Figueroa Mountain Brewing in the Funk Zone in Santa Barbara.  Visitors are welcome to check out any of the sketchbooks for free, or participate by purchasing a sketchbook for $25.

On August 1, 5 – 7:30 pm and during 1st Thursday, the Project will be in the plaza between the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and Santa Barbara Public Library.  In addition to check-out privileges, visitors have the opportunity to fill in two sketchbooks, paid for by the Museum, during a Teaching Artist-led art project in association with the upcoming SBMA contemporary exhibition, Labour and Wait.  These books will become part of the ongoing library of over 200 works collected during the tour of the country.

The Mobile Library’s visit to Santa Barbara is being funded by the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, in collaboration with the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Public Library, and Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative

The Project’s Summer Tour includes stops in every corner of the country, from Portland, ME to Los Angeles. As part of the adventure, Steven and Sara are documenting the tour for an upcoming book. “We’re excited to collect stories from the people and places we encounter throughout the summer,” says Steven. “It’s an opportunity for us to share a pretty crazy experience — traveling across the country with thousands of sketchbooks and meeting thousands of people along the way.” The book will bring together stories from Steven and Sara’s escapades on the road with a behind-the-scenes look at the process of bringing a community art project to life.
