POP! BANG! POW! A Pop Art/Psychedelic Marvel

The community is invited to The Arts Fund Gallery's 2017 fun-raiser, POP! BANG! POW! 2-8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, at 205 Santa Barbara St.

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 Santa Barbara County.

On the event lineup are: a pop art carnival with impossible games, magic, hypnosis by Maizarelda, silkscreening, music, suds and dogs; and Astronauts of Inner Space, a pop/psychedelic exhibit of abstract installations curated by James Van Arsdale.

Since 1983, The Arts Fund has been dedicated to fostering the arts in Santa Barbra County. Its Community Gallery in the Funk Zone hosts guest curators from the area and exhibits the work of emerging and mid-career artists.

The Arts Fund's countywide Teen Arts Mentorship is influential in inspiring and developing Santa Barbara’s next generation of professional artists.

The Arts Fund spearheads efforts to make art thrive in the Funk Zone, coordinating the Art Walk and myriad projects of public art programming. To accomplish this, The Arts Fund depends on the generosity of the community.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
