Third Street Gallery is the fine art gallery of Humboldt State University and showcases the school's outstanding fine arts program.

About the Gallery

Founded in June of 1998, First Street Gallery blends educational curriculum and student involvement with the local community.

Located on the waterfront in the heart of the historic Old Town district of Eureka, California, the Gallery provides needed exhibition space for local artists and invited artists from out of the area, and produces educational literature about current developments in the arts and their relevance.
