The AIPP program presents art exhibits that promote local artists of all cultural backgrounds and arts media by displaying their works in a prominent public place, to enhance arts awareness of the community. We have two permanent exhibit locations: the Del Norte Courthouse and Crescent City Regional Airport.
As a part of our Art in Public Places (AIPP) program, DNACA holds a Juried Multimedia Show each November where artists are invited to enter their original works, of any visual arts medium, created in the past two years. Artists who are juried into November's Show are offered a chance for a Solo Exhibition at the Del Norte County Courthouse, or at the 2nd Floor Mezzanine at Crescent City Regional Airport.
DNACA also holds an annual "Art from the Inside" show which consists of artwork created by inmates at Pelican Bay State Prison. The inmates are students in the visual arts workshops as a part of the Arts in Corrections program. This program helps inmates channel their emotions positively, and gives them a healthier way of expressing themselves. This program is a partnership with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the California Arts Council.
