The Volcano Art Center (VAC) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) educational organization founded in 1974 to promote, develop, and perpetuate the artistic and cultural heritage of Hawai‘i’s people and environment through activities in the visual, literary, and performing arts.
VAC is based out of two locations in Volcano on the Big Island of Hawai’i, at Kīlauea, the world’s most accessible and active volcano:
Volcano Art Center Gallery is located in the 1877 Volcano House Hotel under a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service. Centered at Kilauea, home to Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of the volcano, of creativity, of Fire, Volcano Art Center Gallery has been a mecca for visual artists since 1974. This dynamic and powerful environment has inspired the Hawaiian people and their crafts, songs, dances, and legends for centuries. Today, the Kilauea region continues to draw artists, performers, writers, scientists, and educators from around the world to create, reflect, learn and embrace the beauty and power of the natural world.
Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus Administration Offices and educational facility are located in Volcano Village, nestled within the Niaulani Rain Forest. From the steaming edge of Kilauea to the nurturing wet roots of the old growth `Ohia forest, Volcano Art Center staff, board, artists and supporters know we are blessed to live and work among such beauty, and a place so alive with inspiration and mana to
create, regenerate and exhilarate!
