Every visit to Huntington Beach should include a stop at the Huntington Beach Art Center on Main Street. Opened to the public in 1995, the Art Center is the creative heart of downtown HB. A community arts and culture center, the Art Center provides space for creative expression, offering low cost, high-quality art, music, and movement classes in its studios and dynamic exhibitions and event programming in its galleries.
The Huntington Beach Art Center hosts six exhibitions a year, often providing valuable opportunities for regional artists to share their art with residents and visitors in the Huntington Beach community. Special community events are also held at the Art Center and can be found on the website. Operated in partnership with the City of Huntington Beach and the Huntington Beach Art Center Foundation, admission to the Art Center is free and open to the public. The Art Center is closed on Sunday, Monday and most holidays.
