The Humboldt Arts Project!

Founded by artist and community organizer Vico in November of 2009 the Humboldt Arts Project is comprised of a fluid group of visual and performing artists throughout Humboldt County. The H.A.P aims to enrich the North Coast community through the promotion and exhibition of visual and performing arts.

Currently The H.A.P takes place in four locations! The Ironside Gallery (9th&I), The Robert Goodman Wines Tasting Room, Humboldt Brews, & The Jambalaya

The H.A.P. understands the important role that art plays in the building of a healthy conscious community. Our goal is to connect our vibrant local artist community with the rest of the public. As a non-profit event we want to create a dedicated art space in which all types of artists can connect with their community without out the financial stress of having to sell or purchase artwork. We hope that by removing the financial aspect it will encourage a more open dialog between artists and their community.

The HAP's exhibits are put on by a concerted group of volunteers whose tasks are to help spread the message, help organize event details, help in setup, security and break down tasks.

Soon we will list all artists involved in this vibrant project.

All of the community is encouraged to get involved. Come and join us by being part of this experiment!
