The Willapa Heritage Foundation is calling for submissions of original artwork for its 2017 HEARTS for the ARTS logo and poster. The 2017 theme is "MARDI GRAS" and our fabulous fundraising event will be held Saturday, February 11 in South Bend. We are looking for a reproducible artwork, in any medium, that can be used in a variety of online marketing and print promotions and that best represents this year's theme.

Submissions are due November 1st and will be evaluated by the WHF Board. The winning artist will receive two free dinner tickets to the Hearts for the Arts event.

What We Do

The Willapa Heritage Foundation provides support to local artists and supports the arts in the Willapa Bay area. We promote diverse cultural and artistic enrichment programs and opportunities for our community - children and adults - to both create and enjoy art.

We hold one annual fundraiser, Hearts for the Arts, to support these goals.

If you are an artist and would like to donate a work to the auction, please contact us.

Community and Artist Grants Youth Art Scholarships

Our mission is to promote cultural and artistic enrichment in our community. We provide opportunities for members of our community to both create and enjoy art.In the last fiscal year the Foundation has given money to the Carriage House Museum, the Timberland Library’s summer-artist-in residence program, the Willapa Harbor Choral, Sunday Afternoon Live and our local schools. If you're an artist or organization providing Arts education or Arts based programming and would like to request financial assistance from the Willapa Heritage please contact us.

In the fall of 2015, we offered mini-grants of up to $25.00 for students grades 8-12 for purchase of supplies for art,craft and performing arts projects. Students receiving grants are invited to participate at our vendor's booth during the Raymond Festival Days in August 2016, or show/donate their work to Hearts for the Arts. The application for these grants has closed. The board is considering offering more of these grants. If you know a student in need, please contact us.

We offer an annual scholarship to local high school seniors who plan to pursue an Arts based degree. The scholarship is awarded at the successful completion of your first college quarter. Past awards have been made up to $1000, depending on merit and need. The application period for students enrolling for Fall term 2016 closed on April 30, 2016.
