A great, creative display of art in the woods. We were also lucky to be there when they were hanging a show of plein air paintings of the peninsula. Strolling along the paths we met up with a group of deer who seemed very accustomed to visitors. Every turn held a surprise with displays from the ground to the tops... More

No show was hung at the time of our visit as they were preparing for a big plein air painting festival, but we enjoyed the sculpture garden. Beware, the footing can be unstable there, the paths aren't particularly flat. Worth a visit, friendly staff, small gift shop area.

This was a marvelous surprise. The forest has been left in a natural state as opposed to gardened with pathways meandering throughout the five acres. I am sure we did not see all there is to see. Some of the sculptures were ominous, some were decorative, some carried social messages, some were whimsical -- my words can not convey the... More

Loved this amazing art center, with sculptures in the woods behind the center. About 3 minutes up the hill from Port Angeles downtown. Run by lovely volunteers. No admission charge and just charming and interesting.

Our hotel manager at the Royal Victorian hotel suggested we visit the Art Center. It's a beautiful wooded area with art thru out the walk. Amazing art, a lot of it just made you smile.

Museum itself was "ok." What made the visit worthwhile was the tree park, and all the hidden art along the many winding paths.

The P.A. Fine Arts Center is well worth a visit. The setting is lovely, in Webster's Woods, and the exhibits are well curated and meaningful in their arrangement. The outdoor exhibits, mainly sculptural, mostly of native materials, are very compelling. In addition, some theater work has been staged there. A few years ago, "Women Without Men" was performed in Webster's... More

My husband is used to my dragging him to museums and galleries, but this was a venue I had to drag him from. The exhibit we most enjoyed was the art forest walk, which we spent more time than expected at his small site. The weather wasn't great, but it didn't hinder our enjoyment; I would imagine the site is... More

We found this place easily with our GPS. The art display indoors was a bit limited but interesting. The outdoor display is what our small group of 3 very much enjoyed. The Center is located on 5 acres with trails and adorned by various pieces of art scattered through out along the trails. The weather cooperated during our visit, making... More

This is a fun place to visit and it is free. The property is forested and has lots of little trails to follow. There are works of art hidden everywhere; above your head, on the ground, in the bushes. The art seems to change over time, so if you return a year later, you'll see something new. When I was... More
