This month the Arts Fund hosts its 2017 fun-raiser, POP! BANG! POW! This bold Pop Art Carnival takes place at the Arts Fund Gallery (205 Santa Barbara St.) on Saturday, October 14 from 2-8 p.m. Attendees take part in exciting games, and are treated to performances like the magic show by Mark Collier and hypnosis show by Maizarelda!
POP! BANG! POW! also features incredible aerial performances, silkscreening, music and Astronauts of Inner Space, a Pop/Psychedelic exhibition of abstract installations curated by James Van Arsdale.
Proceeds from the event help support the Arts Fund’s mission to bring the work of local artists to the people of Santa Barbara County, while also helping to maintain the community gallery in the Funk Zone.
The Arts Fund gallery hosts guest curators from the community and exhibits the work of emerging and mid-career artists. Their county-wide Teen Arts Mentorship is influential in inspiring and developing Santa Barbara’s next generation of professional artists.
This local nonprofit continuously spearheads efforts to keep art thriving in the Funk Zone, coordinating the Art Walk and myriad projects of public art programming. To accomplish all of this they need help from the community. Come out for this unique event and help support a good cause!
