Love the Arts 2017: Singin’ in the Rainforest



Volcano Art Center is proud to present our 13th annual fundraiser gala, Love the Arts, scheduled for Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 5pm-9pm. This year, our theme is “Singin’ in the Rainforest.”

Our beautiful Hale Ho’omana will be decked out for “Singin’ in the Rainforest” with beautiful, one-of-a-kind umbrellas painted by Big Island artists.  Guests will be treated to an evening of fine wine, brews, a luxurious gourmet buffet and spirited Hawaiian music. The live and silent auctions are not to be missed, with unique offerings including original artwork, hotel stays, tours, and jewelry.

Each year our Silent and Live Auctions grow in size and reputation because of the generosity of people in our community. Your support of this event allows us to fund classes, as well as exhibits and workshops, and to offer creative arts experiences in Volcano’s uniquely nurturing and inspiring environment. Enjoy a fabulous night of gourmet catered food, fine wines, chocolate truffles, and Silent & Live auctions that will include both art, as well as experiences, hotel stays, restaurants, local products, and gift certificates to local businesses!  {Scroll DOWN for a Preview!}

Tickets are $55 for VAC Members & $65 for Non-Members, with tickets available at the door for $65 and are available at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village, Volcano Art Center Gallery in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, and online, HERE!

This evening of art, food and wine will be hosted at Volcano Art Center’s Hale Ho‘omana. Monies raised will be used for arts and cultural education, as well as programs and classes/workshops.

      Aloha Chris,
      Love the Arts takes place on Saturday, February 25 at 5pm — not to be confused with January 30, which is the day the blog post was created.
