Clay and Laura have been working for the past four months on a "Creative Expansion Tour" to blend the dynamic creative cultures of Southern California and the highlands of Ecuador for mutual exploration and collaborative expression. Housed in an 80 year old colonial house in Cuenca, Ecuador’s El Centro district, Fishbon del Sur’s purpose is to provide a forum, education and support for creative collaboration, mentorship and the visceral experience of visual, aural and performance-based art. It is also provides exhibition media for the artists and their work.

This amazing large scale mural by members of the Lakomuna artist's collective in Cuenca, Ecuador is part of an upcoming street art exhibition at the space. Fishbon del Sur has also hosted musical performances, live readings and planning workshops for the Cuenca bi-lingual and bi-cultural community theatre company.

Seven artists presented their very cool concept ideas for murals to replace the original at the International AutoHaus on Cottage Grove on August 17th. But after consultations with neighbors, Santa Barbara native Uriel Leon was selected. Uriel and his crew of neighborhood artists will begin the project in October. Thanks to all who submitted and to the neighbors, Mayor Helene Schneider, and city council candidates to attended the audition to support the project.






The January 3, 2013 issue of the local Santa Barbara alternative newspaper, the Independent featured a cover story about recent initiatives and projects in the Funk Zone neighborhood. CCN Principals Laura Inks and Clay Bodine were profiled in the story. To view the piece online, click on the link below.

The Youth Interactive Project officially opened their Santa Barbara Funk Zone Center for art and entrepreneurship. The project focuses on providing opportunities for at-risk youth to learn entrepreneurial skills.



The Graffiti Project was featured in a recent Santa Barbara Independent Article about a pair of software entrepreneurs who have developed an online art marketplace. Check it out here:



The International Autohausat 403 De La Vina Street in Santa Barbara had a familiar problem until the weekend of August 11th. Taggers were putting up gang graffiti almost every night. Neighbors tried everything. They painted over the tags repeatedly, organized a neighborhood watch, contacted the city. Nothing worked. Then the owner of the business contacted CCN partner Laura Inks on a tip from a neighbor. Laura got in touch with a local artist and asked him to get a crew together to replace the tags with a full wall mural. The artists discussed the project with Erwin from Autohaus and started work three days later. The wall looks amazing. Neighbors were so inspired they organized an impromptu block party complete with hotdogs and beverages, set up lawn chairs and watched the artists work until 1am. Everyone's happy and best of all, there have been no new tags on the wall since. The project is ongoing and new art will be added every six months. __________________________________________________________________

Laura Inks is planning to change up the murals at Mason and Helena Streets for October 6th. Ideally, she would like to see examples of the work of creatives who live and work in the neighborhood. That would require about 18 artists to each take a panel. Laura plans to have the works installed in time for that day, rather than painting them on site.
The mural could be an example of your work, related to food (Epicure SB), or something just for fun. If you are not planning something in your own space for that day you are welcome to paint on the day as well. It could even lead people to your studio, website etc. as a way of marketing all that's going on in the Funk Zone.
If you are interested in doing a piece for Oct. please reply contact Laura at:

Creative Expansion Tour in Ecuador

The first month has been taxing and wonderful. After three solid weeks of looking we found what we think will be a great pace to work on new projects, but at the same time, I lost my bag with wallet, hard drives, my favorite pen and sunglasses–a big loss. Nothing is irreplaceable, but it's a major inconvenience…
