Every time I visit Volcano I try to make time to walk around here. The talent of local artists is amazing. Jewelry, paintings, wood, art photos, glass and more. A great place to buy something that you can look at and recall your trip. Plus support the local economy.

The art center was filled with locally made quality art from paintings to blown glass. I will try to attach a picture if it will let me. Crashed last time. There was one blown glass vase that looked like a volcano erupting. Marvelous pieces made from wood. Terrific paining of the volcano. etc.

The Art Center is just a short walk from the Volcanoes Visitor Center. Work by local artists is featured...some unusual, some very interesting. This is worth a short visit.

The art center building itself is worth a visit. It's a remodeled building that was almost used by firefighters as a training exercise. The art inside is nicely displayed in many small rooms.

Loved the setting and the staff but there was little I could afford. They offer classes in many crafts and classes at 11 am on Fridays are interesting, free and all materials are provided. The park entrance fee applies unless you have a National Parks pass or pay a one time fee for a Senior Pass

This is just a matter of personal taste in art. The saleswoman was VERY helpful and gave us an education on folklore surrounding lava. According to her, natives believe NO lava (or ANYTHING, for that matter) is supposed to be removed from the island. Hmm, it's not like there isn't a surplus.🌋
