Walking Wednesday – The FUNk Zone! @ Garden Street Public Lot, behind Visitors Center

August 23rd – The ‘FUNk Zone’ with Marcello Ricci

It’s time to dig a little deeper into the art scene and more in Santa Barbara’s fabled ‘Funk Zone.’  Our docent leader Marcello, Director of the Arts Fund Santa Barbara, will tour us through some of the more vibrant Funk Zone areas with stops at galleries, studios and murals, ending with a wine/beer purchase opportunity at the Waterline.

Meet behind the Visitors Center in the Garden Street public parking lot near the corner of Cabrillo Blvd.  We will enter the ‘back door’ of the Funk Zone from there.
