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 Del Norte Regional Airport.
This exhibit is filled with art by Veterans, and their Family Members. The exhibit is on display through Jan 12, 2023 at the Del Norte Courthouse in Crescent City, Mon - Fri from 8am - 5pm, except state or federal holidays, Many types of visual artwork are displayed, including photography, drawing, acrylic, and more.
Enjoy this photography exhibit by local artist John Barker. This exhibit features photography where every subject is in the air, or is aviation oriented. Now on display through Jan 12, 2023, at the 2nd floor mezzanine of the CEC Airport, 1650 Dale Rupert Road, Crescent City, during the airport terminal’s regular hours.
As a part of our Art in Public Places (AIPP) program, DNACA holds a Juried Multimedia Show each year 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 the exhibit are offered a chance for a Solo Exhibition at the Del Norte County Courthouse, or at the 2nd Floor Mezzanine at the Del Norte 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.
