The Art

“TuxedoKat” is a state of mind to Artist Katlyn Cornelius. It is free flowing imagination mixed with unrelenting ambition. It is tangible works of art and opted-in experiences. It is choosing to feel it all and feeling sorry for none of it. #ExploreYourCrazy

Please join us at Southern Strain Brewery in Downtown Concord for free beer, wine and the inside scoop of Concord’s newest non-profit, Fulltime Funkytown.
Fulltime Funkytown is a non-profit working FULLTIME to cultivate the creative culture in our community through participation and public art with a priority to include all members of our community. We will celebrate, promote and assist local artists in their projects and connect them with entities that desire creative services.
Learn all the details of FTF’s first project: The Concord Sculpture Show! By mid-May, Concord will have ten temporary sculptures in and around Downtown Concord.
Our first year of the CSS will be self-funded as we ask the community for financial support through our non-profit. This event will provide information for interested folks/residents who have been craving for a strong creative culture in our community.
Your tax-deductible donation will jump start our initiative! We will gladly accept cash, check, credit card or venmo (@FulltimeFunkytown).
