The Artist Series & Online Auction
FluidStance® is fortunate to be located in the Funk Zone, an artist community and overall funky neighborhood in Santa Barbara, CA. Due to the impact of COVID-19, foot traffic to this neighborhood has drastically plummeted, directly impacting our local artists and their businesses. As such, we partnered with four local artists for The Artist Series & Online Auction. Each artist produced two Level® balance boards, each of them a one-of-a-kind offering that we auctioned off in May 2020. 100% of the proceeds from each board went directly back to the artists. Thank you to all of you who participated in our online auction.
The Funk Zone: Santa Barbara's Artist Community
Back in the 1900s, what has become known as the Funk Zone in downtown Santa Barbara was in fact the industrial, manufacturing, and marine hub of the city. Bordered by U.S. 101, State Street, and the Pacific Ocean, converted warehouses decorated with graffiti art and contemporary art pieces set the tone for this artist community. The Funk Zone consists of 10 walkable blocks full of tasting rooms, artist’s studios and galleries, breweries and tap rooms, surfboard-makers, cafes, shops, and bohemian-cool restaurants. Oh, did we mention the beautiful beach and Stearns Wharf?
This growing arts neighborhood has an aptly named Urban Wine Trail, featuring wines made with grapes from different corners of Santa Barbara County. If wine's not your thing, the many breweries and taprooms will quench your thirst, while the restaurants and cafes will feed your hunger. As you sip, eat, and shop your way through the Funk Zone, make sure to stop into its many galleries and studios, and check out the ever-changing murals on Mason Street, part of an ongoing project by AMASS (Artists Making A Street Scene).
Quality That Lasts A Lifetime
Every Level balance board is made right here in the USA, within a 2-hour drive of Santa Barbara. Constructed of premium eco materials, the Level's base is die-cast, military-grade aluminum that is powder-coated using a near-zero-emission method. We recycle all scrap metal from this process back into the supply chain.
The Level’s beautiful geometric base is topped with a half-inch of maple or bamboo that is milled and finished locally.
A FluidStance deck is one aspect of a healthier workday, helping you achieve greater levels of activity and keeping your body in motion to expend energy and burn calories while still productively working.
