Dear Patrons, Students, and Guests, On March 17th, the Orange County Health Officer issued an order that prohibits all NON-ESSENTIAL public and private gatherings of any number of people, outside a person’s home. And so, with heavy hearts the Huntington Beach Art Center will be closing our doors for the time being. All classes, events and programing in the near future have been cancelled and we will issue refunds to everyone impacted. As many of you know, we hoped to bring the vibrant talents of our local students to our community this month through Creative Visions. The exhibition will not be shown, however we hope the young artists continue to be proud of their hard work and creativity. This spring, we also hoped to share with you the work of our local community college art students in “Envisioning the Future of Design” from April 25- June 13. With the schools being especially impacted during this time, we are unable to showcase this exhibition and the corresponding fundraising event Dress to Inspire. We were especially looking forward to this show and the opportunity to work with fresh talented artists working in the design arts mediums. It would have been an incredible exhibition. Although this in not how we dreamed our 25th anniversary year would go, we know that we have a wonderful community of supporters and guests that will be here when we open up once again. We look forward to the time when we can welcome you all back into our gallery and classroom spaces, where local, regional, and national artists and the community share in a climate of experimentation, education, and experience. -The Huntington Beach Art Center Staff
