The Hammond Art Guild is celebrating their 54th annual Spring Open Exhibition in May. This show will feature work chosen as part of a judged exhibition ranging several different mediums. The selected entries will be on display in the Hammond Regional Arts Center (HRAC) from May 6 through May 27, with a public reception scheduled for Friday, May 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. 

A special edition of the Let's Talk Art lecture series will be held on Wednesday, May 11 at 5 p.m. at the HRAC.

HRAC Coming Home Dinner

In addition to the four dinner season, the HRAC is hosting a special dinner in September. The “HRAC Comes Home” dinner will feature Chef Josh Burris of Mariner's Inn on September 12 at the HRAC. This extra dinner has a little something more to give. In addition to a delicious two-course meal, attendees will leave with a special "lagniappe" surprise. Tickets are as low as $50 for HRAC members and $55 for non-members for the HRAC Comes Home dinner. Seating is limited.

Calendar of Events


The Hammond Regional Arts Center (HRAC) supports, promotes, and coordinates visual, performing, and literary arts in Tangipahoa Parish and surrounding parishes. Our primary mission is to enrich lives through quality arts education, develop an appreciation of the arts within individuals, and introduce the public to professional exhibitions, performances and literature.

The Hammond Regional Arts Center is supported in part by a Decentralized Arts Funding Grant from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge in cooperation with the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and Louisiana State Arts Council.

Our sincere gratitude goes out to our many supporters! Special thanks to those who have shown support of our efforts to promote the arts.
