New Exhibits at the Clarke Museum
Original theater in Humboldt
Back to the land healthcare and childbirth
The Humboldt Area Peoples Archive (HAPA), in partnership with the Clarke Museum, is showing select materials from the archive on rural healthcare and childbirth, and a curated collection with a focus on original theater including a mask and photos of Dell Arte’s Joan Schirle in her extraordinary solo performance Second Skin, Human Nature’s Wolf at the Door, and the Pure Schmint Players’ Vibram Soul. HAPA is grateful for items on loan from Dell’ Arte International and from Jane Lapiner as well as Lily Aquarian.
Nicole Riggs, Executive Director of the Humboldt Area Peoples Archive, highlights that “Humboldt’s rich history from the 1960s to now is an asset for the community and visitors to explore. Our exhibit is but a glimpse into the extensive cultural movements that continue to shape our area.” Says Josh Buck, Executive Director of the Clarke Museum: “The Humboldt Area Peoples Archive is a treasure trove of Humboldt, Mendocino, and Trinity County history that the Clarke Historical Museum is enthusiastic to help share with both locals and those from around the world.”
On display through November at the Clarke Museum, 240 E Street in Old Town, Eureka.
