About HCAA

 Image Hyattsville Community Arts Alliance is a non-profit organization founded in 1994.

The association is comprised of prestigious painters, sculptors, photographers, crafts makers and musicians, primarily from the local region.

HCAA curates numerous exhibits, working in conjunction with the City of Hyattsville and the Prince George's Arts and Humanities Council to provide artists with show space and the community with art program venues and educational workshops. HCAA's ongoing programs at Franklin's Restaurant, Prince George's Plaza Community Center, Old Line Fine Wine, Spirits & Bistro, Doctor's Community Hospital, Fleisher's of Maryland, Robert Harper Books, and "ArtSpin" are known throughout the region.

HCAA is supported in part by grants from:

  • The Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission
  • Maryland State Arts Council
  • Verizon Matching Grant Program
