Art at MichaelKate presents Block Party! Funk Zone Studio Artists Sampler, featuring more than 18 artists, either with studios in the Funk Zone or past involvement in the development of the FZ art scene. Curated by Jan Ziegler. MichaelKate has been in its current location since 1997 and has always been supportive of local artists. Past curator at MichaelKate, artist Brad Nack (who has work in the show), was instrumental in promoting art in the Funk Zone as the area began emerging six years ago.
