SUPPORT THE ARTS

With your help, we are enriching the Hollidaysburg Area with arts & culture through music events & arts education.

GET INVOLVED

How it All Began…

The HAAC started in 1998.  At a public town hall meeting, the group identified a need to establish an organization to bring art and music to the Hollidaysburg area. It was identified that there was a need for more arts activities for young and young at heart.

The idea was embraced by many who volunteered time and talents to the group we are today.  Concerts, art camps, adult workshops and other arts program began to be planned. Our efforts were noticed by the public and gathered support from many.

Our Programs

We offer annual Free Summer Concerts, Art Camps for kids, Adult Workshops and more!

Awards

HAAC has been inducted into the Blair County Arts Hall of Fame and recognized by the Blair County Historical Society, Hollidaysburg Alumni Association, PA Council of the Arts, & PA Rural Arts Alliance.

MURAL RESTORATION

In summer 2018, Deb Bunnel and her husband Roger took time to start restoring this beautiful mural. The wall was cleaned and given a new protective coat! First painted in 2002, Deb Bunnel and Kathy Gassler the lead artists who directed community volunteers to bring it to life! You can find this masterpiece on the district Justice building across from Zion Lutheran on Union Street.
