The Honarkar Foundation

At The Honarkar Foundation, we envision a world where the arts and humanities are not exclusive privileges, but rather cherished resources that inspire, empower, and connect.

The Honarkar Foundation is dedicated to supporting and promoting arts, culture, and education in Laguna Beach.


Launched in 2023, our spacious 4,200 square-foot exhibition venue is housed within the historically significant former post-office building at 298 Broadway Street.
This museum-quality exhibition space is dedicated to showcasing a rotating series of curated shows, with a specific focus on Southern California artists.
It also plays host to a diverse range of public programming and collaborations, including performances, screenings and discursive events.
