An example of some of the painted stools up for auction.

Havasu Area Public Art will hold the 5th Annual Barstool Auction at the Flying X Saloon on Saturday, Nov. 6. The auction and fun begins at 4:30 p.m. and lasts until all items are sold.

“This event has become a favorite for anyone looking for something unique for their home, patio or RV,” HAPA Secretary Irene Rose said. “Each barstool is an original work of art created by local artists.”

HAPA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create and promote public art in Lake Havasu City. All funds raised are used to sponsor public art throughout the city. In the past the organization has sponsored the car mural on McCulloch Blvd., the bicycle mural on the Mesquite building on Lake Havasu Ave N., Cupcake Mountain on Inspire the Church, and the Farm to Table mural on the KAWS building.

HAPA’s most recent project is the mosaic tile mural, We Are Havasu, made up of tiles with photos submitted by the public located on the Shabby Shack and Book Exchange building.
