Humboldt Collects!

Are you a collector? We want you!

Exhibition Dates:  February 24 through April 22, 2018

To anyone else, it’s just a dozen salt and pepper shakers. To you, they’re a precious part of your identity.

Are you driven by a passion to find just the right item to add to your collection? The Humboldt Arts Council invites community members to share the wonderful, weird, or wacky treasures that define their personal tastes as collectors in the show: Humboldt Collects!

Collections aren’t just something we do; they define who we are. A handful of buttons carries on the meaning of a centuries-old family tradition. Immaculate Spiderman comics represent the hero you want to be. What does your collection say about you? Share your most prized items in this spring’s public exhibition, Humboldt Collects.

About the Exhibition
Inspired by our role as a collecting institution, the HAC will showcase unusual and interesting collections from the area. This celebration of the art of collecting will focus on art and non-art items such as tools, household goods, sporting equipment, jewelry, toys, music, books, nature (insects, rocks) and so on—basically anything individuals find collectible, from everyday things to the outright eccentric.

Submission Guidelines
To submit a collection, please send a completed Humboldt Collects Submission Form, which can be downloaded HERE and up to 3 digital images (high resolution JPEG: minimum 300 dpi, 1 MB) to jemima@humboldtarts.org by January 20, 2018. Large files can be sent through a file hosting service. Selections will be made based on the submitted digital images and information provided on the form.
