Homer Council on the Arts

The Homer Council on the Arts is one step closer to fully funding its yurt project. The Rasmuson Foundation is awarding the council $130,000 to help cover construction costs.

The yurt, which will be added onto HCOA’s main building, will comfortably fit 200 people and will hold a variety of classes, workshops and events. HCOA Executive Director Peggy Paver said it was incredibly uplifting to hear the Rasmuson would fund such an exciting project.

Summer may be over, but fall classes at the Homer Council on the Arts are just beginning. Three “circus art” classes are set to begin this week.
