Join the Humboldt Arts Council at the Morris Graves Museum of Art on Friday, November 2nd from 5 to 7 p.m. for the 2017 Celebration of the Arts. This year we will honor Libby Maynard, Arts Advocate and Executive Director of the Ink People Center for the Arts, with the 2018 Outstanding Contribution to the Arts Award.  In addition to her work leading The Ink People, Libby serves on the Boards of Directors of Access Humboldt, Alliance for California Traditional Arts, and Humboldt County Workforce Investment Board.  And since 2005, she has served as staff to the City of Eureka’s Art & Culture Commission, and sits on Eureka Main Street’s Public Arts Committee.  She has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors in California.

The evening includes a sampling of hors d'oeuvres crafted by Uniquely Yours Catering, with hosted California wines and no-host specialty cocktails. Enjoy live music and a raffle benefiting the Humboldt Arts Council, the Morris Graves Museum of Art and youth art education programs.

We are the caretakers of the arts and artists of Humboldt County 

It is our goal to ensure that art is a part of everyone’s lives in Humboldt County, by supporting the artists who live among us and by offering free and low-cost arts programs and exhibitions to the public at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. Every year, we are proud to serve over 16,000 local students by bringing art banks into schools, as well as providing school tours, art camps, and monthly family arts day events.

We also work tirelessly to provide programs and resources that support and inspire the artists living and working among us. Since 2001, we have served as stewards for the Morris Graves Museum of Art which now serves as the hub for our work. In this historic building, we share the work of artists from both Humboldt County and around the world, and continually strive to make this vibrant space inviting and inspiring to all who call Humboldt County home.
