Love The Arts

Love the Arts 2019

Volcano Art Center invites you to attend our 15th annual LOVE THE ARTS fundraiser on Saturday, February 9, 2019 in Hale Ho‘omana at our Ni‘aulani Campus in Volcano Village.  This annual gala is our main event to raise funds for Volcano Art Center which allows us to fund classes, exhibits, workshops, and offer the creative arts experience in this uniquely nurturing and inspiring environment.  

This event is highlighted by unique decorations, delicious food, fine wines, and of course the live and silent auctions. Everyone will have an opportunity to bid on artwork, hotel stays, restaurants, local products, services, gift certificates to businesses and attractions. Our theme this year is celebrating 50th Anniversary of Woodstock with music, memorabilia, tie-dyed bell-bottoms and beads.  So raid your closets and come join us for what will be a groovy evening.  

Questions can be directed to Mike Nelson, Executive Director by email, or by phone (808) 967-8222.

Tickets are $65 or $55 VAC Members and are available for purchase at Volcano Art Center Ni‘aulani Campus in Volcano Village, Volcano Art Center Gallery in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, and ONLINE! 

Each year we ask local artists to contribute their artwork for this event, to be auctioned in order to raise the needed funds to sustain  VAC programs and classes.  These artists and businesses who give to the event do so with a knowledge that their donation will have a direct impact on the survival of the Art Center. The Volcano Art Center is an integral part of this unique community offering a sense of belonging to those who live and work around it.

Guests will be treated to an evening of fine wine, brews, and a luxurious gourmet buffet. The live and silent auctions are not to be missed, with unique offerings including original artwork, hotel stays, tours, and jewelry.
