Thank you for being a part of a great year at HRLA!

March, 2014: Dorian Wood performing with Rattle Rattle Chamber Orchestra; installation art by Jacqueline Bell Johnson

HRLA hosted over 100 events in 2014. We are proud of how much we accomplished in the past 12 months, and so grateful to the artists who have shared their work with us. We are an all volunteer organization: the people you see at the door, cleaning up, managing tech, sweeping and painting, building and breaking down — these people are HRLA.

In 2015, we would like to bring HRLA to a place where we can reward at least some of that labor with a paycheck. Individual donations from people like you are an important part of that project! Please help us honor this resolution, and donate to HRLA: whether you give $5, or $500 — every donation will help us get there faster. You can give to HRLA through our website: Support HRLA.

We have such an exciting year coming up: check out our January calendar and a list of upcoming exhibitions on our website. Contact us if you'd like to join our volunteer group or sign up for our mailing list. Thank you for being part of a blockbuster year!
