Mission StatementMORE »

The Huntington Beach Art Center (HBAC) is a community arts and cultural center. Since opening its doors in 1995, HBAC has become the primary center for art and culture in Huntington Beach, while serving the entire Southern California region. HBAC presents the works of artists producing in all mediums. Through exhibitions, performances, film/video screenings, lectures, and educational programming, HBAC serves to advance public awareness and understanding of cultural, historic, and contemporary perspectives. HBAC creates opportunities for local, regional, and national artists, and the community, to share in a climate of experimentation, education, and experience.

HBAC is a hybrid organization owned and operated by the City of Huntington Beach, Community Services Department and supported by the Huntington Beach Municipal Art Center Foundation, our non-profit 501(c)3 charitable partner. Founded in 1989, the HBAC Foundation was created to fundraise for HBAC construction and program endowment. The Foundation continues to raise funds on our behalf, and acts as a passthrough account under which name we apply for grants. It has, at present, successfully raised over $2 million for HBAC's renovation, programs, and operations.

HBAC acts pursuant to a spirit of inclusion. We strive to advance the benefits of the arts and of community engagement to persons of all ages from our community and beyond. In an effort to provide access to the arts for all, HBAC offers all of its exhibition programming and corresponding special events at no cost to the public. Classes are offered at nominal price with further discounts available through Art Center memberships. HBAC also runs programs to introduce even the youngest members of our community to the enriching nature of the arts, and a number of scholarships are available for our annual Summer Art Camp so that all children—especially those from our most underserved neighborhoods—have the chance to participate.

Background Statement

The Huntington Beach Art Center (HBAC) opened its doors in 1995 as a community arts and cultural center serving Huntington Beach and the Southern California region. HBAC presents the works of artists producing in all mediums through exhibitions, performances, film/video screenings, lectures, and educational programming. HBAC serves to advance public awareness and understanding of cultural, historic, and contemporary perspectives. HBAC creates opportunities for local, regional and national artists, and the community, to share in a climate of experimentation, education, and experience. Our annual schedule includes six exhibitions—3 contemporary shows and 3 community shows—and special events for families and adults.

Annually, over 15,000 guests attend HBAC for arts, culture, and community engagement. We accomplish this through extensive outreach, educational programming, and activities, in addition to our exhibitions. Studio classes provide a creative outlet for students of all ages in subjects such as drawing, painting, ceramics, cartooning, digital photography, Polynesian dance, Tai Chi, yoga, and guitar.

In 2015, HBAC celebrated 20 years of innovative and inspirational community arts activities. To commemorate this anniversary, we presented a full program of special events that included the exhibition entitled California Impressionism: Plein Air Painting, Past & Present. 2017 also marks an important year for HBAC, as we have created a context for three unique contemporary exhibitions celebrating the artistic accomplishments of women. Titling 2017 as “the Year of Women in the Arts,” our series of exhibitions focuses on recognizing, and providing opportunities for, female artists, who to this day, endure unequal regard in the art world.

HBAC receives financial support from three general sources: operations support from the City of Huntington Beach, annual support from the Huntington Beach Municipal Art Center Foundation, and program support from individual and corporate sponsors. The Huntington Beach Municipal Art Center Foundation was established in 1989 to raise funds for the Art Center construction and program endowment, and until 2002 it produced the annual Summer Classic Equestrian event as their primary fundraiser. The Foundation has been in place now for over two decades and after initial support of the capital campaign to establish the Art Center, has since encouraged ongoing program and operational support through their patronage.

Impact Statement

Throughout HBAC’s history we have established a reputation for presenting exceptional exhibitions and for offering high quality art classes. We are proud of our recent accomplishments that attest to our work towards excellence in exhibition and arts education programming, and our overall strength as an arts organization: In 2006, HBAC was recognized by Arts Orange County with the Outstanding Organization of the Year Award. Last year, our exhibition Memento Mori: Skulls & Bones in Art, curated by Phil Roberts, was named one of the top ten best exhibitions of Orange County in 2016 by OC Weekly. In 2014, the Theresa Plunkett Foundation doubled our grant award allowing us to expand our Partners in Art educational program. These additional funds permitted us to provide free educational programming to 3rd graders throughout Huntington Beach, expanding our reach to even our most financially challenged and underserved communities such as Oak View neighborhood.

HBAC aims to be a recognized world-class art center. In order to achieve this, goals for the coming years include the expansion of community and civic partnerships that support our mission to provide opportunities to local and regional artists. We seek to involve local organizations in the development of exhibitions, events, and special programs whenever feasible. We hope to increase general membership through outreach and marketing strategies, and encourage broader audiences. To sustain these goals we plan on incorporating more of the performing arts (music and dance) to complement our already strong visual arts programming. We also seek to provide more artist and curatorial honorarium opportunities to help support creative professionals. Finally, we want to develop our scholarship program to provide even more financially challenged children and adults an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills and engage in creative play.

Needs Statement

1. Additional Staff: Specialized personnel to focus on curatorial advisory and exhibition programming. Cost: approx. $25,000 for a curator; $30,000 for exhibitions staff.

2. Better Outdoor Signage and Visibility: Our plan is to commission a public artwork for the exterior of the building. At present the beauty and creativity inside our galleries does not translate to the outdoor appearance of our building, something we would like to change. Cost: $8,000 - $10,000.

3. Exhibitions Program: Exhibition funding allows for in-depth research, adequate materials, and most importantly, provides artist honoraria. It is vital that we foster our community of artists by providing financial support to acknowledge their contribution to society.

4. Performance Series: We would like to incorporate more music and dance at HBAC, emphasizing the many different forms art may take, and rounding out our offerings as an Art Center. We seek to establish a platform for performing artists, hosting 10 performances a year. Cost: $32,000 annually.

5. A/V Equipment: To remain technologically current, we require equipment that would be utilized for exhibitions, lectures, screenings, educational programs, and our performance series: 2 digital projectors and 1 large flat screen HD monitor. Cost: $5,500.


CEO Statement

HBAC plays a unique role in the Southern California arts community. Thought is primarily given to the interests and needs of our local audience, with an emphasis on providing arts experiences and opportunities for artists at varying stages of their careers and residents of all ages. As such, we have balanced an exhibition program featuring original, contemporary shows with community shows. Community exhibitions showcase local and regional artists and students from all school districts in Huntington Beach. Meanwhile, each contemporary exhibition is considered in light of art historical context, emerging artists, and topics that reflect societal concerns. HBAC also offers art classes, taught by distinguished, professional artists for students of all ages at very low costs. With popular annual special events, such as Family Arts Day, offered for free or at a nominal price, we have seen our annual attendance grow steadily and significantly over the last 5 years, with a reach that includes national and international guests. As the city of Huntington Beach increasingly becomes a globally recognized tourist destination, HBAC’s location in the city’s downtown core on high-traffic Main Street gives the Art Center the potential to be a widely recognized, world-class arts establishment for residents and visitors alike. Especially in light of the annual US Open of Surfing which happens right here, and brings hundreds of thousands of visitors to our city, with increased funding, HBAC has what it takes to become a globally known go-to spot for high quality arts offerings.

As a 22 year old organization, we have just begun to tap our potential. With increased funding, HBAC is able to implement growth in key areas that would increase our visibility and the breadth of our offerings. We would love to present performing arts along with the visual arts, and to give opportunities to up and coming new talent: musicians, dancers, and choreographers. Funding for a concert series would also engage an entirely new audience. Gallery exhibitions would benefit from additional related programs that deepen the educational experience, including symposiums, artist driven projects, and new opportunities for artists and audience alike.

In the coming years, we embrace the opportunity to drive HBAC into new artistic directions, explore the interests of a new generation of viewers and participants, and develop donors and patrons who will bring participation, support, and stability to the Huntington Beach Art Center. Our potential is unlimited!

 


Board Chair Statement

The HB Art Center Foundation is the fundraising partner for the Art Center. With a focus on revenue generation, advocacy, and ambassadorship, we have partnered with the Art Center from the start of the capital campaign for the building renovation and have continued to raise funds for the general operation of the Art Center. During the last few years, just post recession, we have found that the challenges facing the Art Center have been marked by the need to establish funding sources for exhibitions. In addition, there is a need to establish and maintain a strategic marketing plan to include, in addition to print marketing, a disciplined use of social media. Our efforts to raise funds have included letter writing campaigns focused on the original founders of the Art Center, inviting their support for the Art Center’s 20th Anniversary. The Foundation has taken a leadership role in cultivating donations from individuals in support of the exhibition program. We have sought corporate and business sponsorships for additional support. As the exhibition programming has become balanced between community shows and professional contemporary shows, a combination of fee based programs and sponsored programs has provided the support necessary to establish funding for exhibitions. We continue to face this challenge by cultivating new audiences and support systems throughout the year.

As volunteers, Foundation members have devoted nearly 25 years to establish and maintain a quality art space in Huntington Beach. The very beginnings of the Art Center came as an idea from a local resident, around whom the Foundation was founded in partnership with the City of Huntington Beach. There are original founders still serving on the Foundation’s Board of Directors. Having joined the Board 8 years ago, I have been directly involved in organizing fundraising events and special programs. As a former teacher and a continuing artist, I have continued my involvement from the desire to see our original goal succeed, to provide an Art Center for our local community and to see our children engaging in art activities, developing art skills and enhancing their school based education with both practical and theoretical knowledge learned through the Art Center’s arts education programs. Through grant funded programs, HBAC’s education programs have been supporting the local schools for over 10 years. I am excited and proud to serve as Co-chair of the Huntington Beach Art Center Foundation.

We measure attendance to the exhibition reception and during the course of the exhibition itself. We also look at audience engagement and curiosity as a marker of success for an exhibition, in addition to interviewing participating artists for their input.


Examples of Program Success 


Our community exhibitions have grown steadily each year, and two of our shows have more people interested in participating than we have wall space in the galleries. For the contemporary exhibitions we have received a wave of local support. 


Partners in Art

A partnership program with Huntington Beach City and Ocean View School Districts 3rd graders, Partners in Art provides exposure to the arts at an experiential level for local elementary school students. Groups of students are given guided tours of the current exhibition, followed by workshop activities based on the exhibition and tied to the California Core Standards curriculum.

Budget  $10,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other Extracurricular Arts & Culture
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Program Short-Term Success   

To inspire and educate 3rd graders through art. Provide creative and visual arts curriculum to local elementary school students. Bring children into the galleries to respond to the art. Encourage kids to look at and really think about the art.

Program Long-Term Success   

To build lasting partnerships with local school districts and the Art Center. Empower and support children to look at the world through a creative lens. Ease of engagement between local families and the Art Center.

Program Success Monitored By   

This program is monitored with open lines of communication directly between HBAC staff and district art coordinators. We regard all feedback from the instructors and participants to be paramount in developing useful and enjoyable programs. The outcome and results are evaluated upon completion of the program and necessary changes and suggested improvements are made for the following school year.


Examples of Program Success  This program has grown from involving one local school district, to now including all 3rd graders in the city of Huntington Beach. 

Art at the Beach (Summer Art Camp)/Student Scholarships

A summer camp for children ages 6-12, the program offers four themed weeks of art activities taught by professional artists, structured in half and full day sessions. A variety of visual and performing arts and recreation activities are explored every week. We want to provide opportunities to children of financially challenged families to attend Summer Art Camp by offering scholarships for qualifying families.

Budget  $15,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other General Arts Funding
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) Families At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 

Short term successes include inspiring young minds, teaching them to paint, draw, build, and look at things in new ways. Helping kids build social skills and confidence by providing opportunities for them to succeed, be acknowledged, and work in a group dynamic. Summer Camp should also alleviate some child care cost for financially challenged families. Finally, support the idea that creative play is valuable.

Program Long-Term Success 

We hope that by offering scholarships to families in need we will provide arts education to children that may not have otherwise have this opportunity. Through creative play and exploration we hope to help young minds develop creative thinking skills that can be applied to all aspects of their lives. We feel that this type of assistance will also build strong relationships with local families and show them that art is for everyone.

Program Success Monitored By 

Success is monitored by speaking directly to the parents and teachers of the kids for additional input upon completion of the program. Follow-up surveys are also administered. Success is demonstrated by attendance and participation in future events at the Art Center.

Examples of Program Success  This program has rapidly become popular. Over the last few years, registration has been filling up quickly so much so that waitlists need to be implemented as we have more interested participants than we can accommodate.

Family Arts Day

Traditionally held in October, Family Arts Day (FAD) features a variety of workshops taught by professional artists under tents set-up in our parking lot. At least ten different arts media are offered—from ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, mask-making and more—along with a performing arts component presented on a stage at the back of the parking lot. The program is offered free to the public from noon to 4 pm. This is an intergenerational program inviting parents and grandparents and children of all ages. Past events have seen up to 1,000 guests. FAD is held in conjunction with the opening of a contemporary art exhibition which provides the opportunity for guests to come into the galleries and view the exhibition in addition to participating in the workshops.
Budget  $10,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Public Art Programs
Population Served Families Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Families
Program Short-Term Success  The short term successes are more about the experience that is had by families while here. This program brings in families that might otherwise not come into our galleries to see the exhibitions, and we rely on local vendors and teachers to provide services for the event. Everyone who participates walks away with at least one creation that they made as a keepsake of their own ingenuity. Lots of laughter and merriment is had by all and it attracts people who are just passing by the Art Center on the street. This event raises visibility to the Art Center and brings in a nice broad audience.
Program Long-Term Success  This program offers an entire day of free family friendly activities. Families can count on coming here to explore the arts with their children at absolutely no cost. This program shows to the community our depth of commitment to their needs, interests, and well being. This program also demonstrates our open door policy, our capacity to grow with the neighborhood, and our ability to provide meaningful programming to children of all ages.
Program Success Monitored By  The program successes are monitored by the attendance, reports from the staff that worked the event, discussions with instructors, tracking the amount of supplies that remain as an indicator of the more popular activities and finally by the amount of return visitors.
Examples of Program Success  This program has steadily grown each year from just a few hundred in attendance to over triple that this past event. We have vendors that request to work with us in subsequent years because they enjoyed the experience, more teachers apply than what we can hire each year for the event, and we look at sheer attendance as a marker for success here.

CEO Comments

As a public/private partnership between the City of Huntington Beach and the Huntington Beach Municipal Art Center Foundation, one of the strengths of HBAC is also one of its challenges. As we are owned and operated by the City of Huntington Beach, we are subject to budgetary decisions determined by administration and the Finance department for approval by City Council. The arts were heavily cut during the recession. Lost funding has not been restored. During the last year of cuts, the City eliminated the curator position reducing the number of full time employees to two. Although exhibition programming has not suffered, and in many ways has become more interesting through the engagement of a variety of guest curators, actual funding for exhibitions and related programs has been and continues to be challenged. Staff resources continue to be limited.

As a partnership with the Huntington Beach Municipal Art Center Foundation, the City of Huntington Beach has enjoyed their generosity from the inception of the development of this cultural project. The Foundation began and sustained a capital campaign for nearly five years before the Art Center was opened to the public. The City purchased the building; the Foundation raised funds for the renovation. This partnership has played a vital role in securing program and operational funding since the opening of the Art Center. The recession took a toll on the Foundation. They were not as successful in raising funds and have reached a point in their life as a nonprofit where strategic planning is needed to address changes in their structure, recruitment, purpose, and mission. Without their financial support, the Art Center has relied on staff for raising funds and securing grants and sponsorships for program funding. The Foundation has committed to a planning process and has completed a nine month consultancy with Arts Orange County which generated a thoughtful strategic planning process. They have used this opportunity to clarify their purpose and direction, and are reexamining organizational structure, board recruitment process, and future fundraising efforts.

CEO Comments

As a hybrid organization supported by a private foundation, the Huntington Beach Municipal Art Center Foundation, and owned and operated by the City of Huntington Beach, our comprehensive budget is wrapped up inside the City’s overall budget. We do not have annual audits just for the Art Center. HBAC receives annual funding from the City of Huntington Beach, and is included in the City’s General Fund Budget whose fiscal year runs from October 1st through September 30th. As such, the City’s annual financial audit includes the Art Center, but it does not extrapolate a budget solely for the Art Center’s financials. In other words, we do not receive a separate audited financial report, but are incorporated in the City’s annual audited financials. Furthermore, any deficit incurred by the Art Center is absorbed into the City budget and all costs are zeroed out yearly. Yet, our contributed income varies significantly from year to year based on factors that are entirely out of our control. As grant applicants, HBAC applies under the name of our 501(c)3 partner and passthrough account: the Huntington Beach Municipal Art Center Foundation. We provide the most complete information available to us, as provided by our City Budget Analyst. The Foundation itself is not audited annually, although the City of Huntington Beach is.
