The Art Walk is the Funk Zone’s bi-quarterly event initiated to highlight the neighborhood’s vibrant artistic community. Roughly every eight weeks, over a dozen artist studios, galleries, and art-centric venues open their doors to the public from 5-8pm, making it the ideal day to casually experience the Funk Zone’s cultural offerings. At any given venue, visitors can expect events such as exhibition openings and artist receptions, insightful art lectures, live music and performances, pop-up artist booths, beer and wine tastings, and food trucks. The event is free to the public and welcomes all age groups.Sean Anderson - Violet Basics

Carl Corey: Americaville Photographer and documentarian Carl Corey explores the unique cultural landscape of the Midwest. With humor and wit, Corey’s photographic observations are like singular postcards identifying physical and societal landmarks. The series started as a 480-mile walk across Wisconsin on the historic Yellowstone Trail with a roadside view of the cross section of the humanity that inhabits it. It ends as a vision of the individuality of the human condition. Carl Corey has been on the roster at wall space for 6 years, our last exhibition was the critically acclaimed Wisconsin Tavern League in 2012.
