Love The Arts

Love the Arts 2020 – The Roaring 2020s

Volcano Art Center announces our 16th Annual Love the Arts fundraiser at the Ni‘aulani Campus on Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 5 – 9 pm. 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 The Roaring 2020s. 

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

Tickets are $70 or $65 VAC Members and are available for purchase at Volcano Art Center Niaulani 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.
