Who We Are
HavasuArea Public Art (HAPA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on the creation of public art for Lake Havasu. Founded in 2015, the organization has no members and all activities are driven by the board members.
Funding for all projects is from donations and grants. HAPA runs an annual Barstool Auction at the Flying X where it sells donated, decorated barstools. HAPA is also starting a 6x6 project where artists donate artwork that is6” x 6” for HAPA to sell at $25/artwork.
