The following are true renderings of the Harrington Center renovation and preservation project.
Harrington Center for the Arts is working to save and renovate the historic Harrington School in American Fork, built in 1903, into a community sharing center for the arts to service NorthernUtah County.
Through introspective creativity and continued resilience, in 2020 HCA was able to directly support 314 artists who were impacted by Covid-19 through the integration of streaming educational classes and live events.
Despite increased inconveniences that acted as a barrier between the community member and the artist, HCA was able to increase connection and produced programming with a priority of making art more accessible to the general public.
Through adapting their programs, HCA was able to maximize the number of artists it could support for each event while being efficient with funding.

Our projects have created a cohesiveness in purpose amongst our volunteers from a diverse group of people that would otherwise be strangers.
