What is unique about this particular art center is it's outdoor component. Visitors may walk through an on-site trail and view art embedded in trees and elsewhere. It's especially fun for kids.

Not wheelchair accessible. We were able to go into the gallery and saw some of the artwork. Nice. The outdoor trail was hilly and gravelly, unsuitable for our transport chair. The few sculptures we saw were impressive and fun art.

It's a tiny little gallery in what was once a city founder's home. Ok, not city founder. Newspaper founder, and very cool woman. The house and grounds feel wild and cozy at the same time. Go for the outside art walk. Kids who've been cooped up can roam the woods, discovering art installations and interesting views. The meadow is a... More

We have visited the PAFAC three times in the last month bringing friends and out-of-town family to see the outdoor art exhibits around the center. There is always something new to see. If there is a debit, it is that the trail is for adults and children who have no problem walking on moderate slopes. Our three year old grandbabe... More

Had been here several years ago and had to find it again. An art exhibit in the wild, every where you look, on the ground or hidden in the trees, it was a different experience. My teenage granddaughter was very impressed. We went twice before leaving Port Angeles. I only saw one repeat from my last visit. Each time I... More

I swung through Port Angeles on my way back to Seattle. After driving through downtown for Twilight purposes, I stopped by the Fine Arts Center. Small inside, with only about two rooms. However, the outside is a sculpture garden which winds through various trails with hidden surprises around the bends. It's free and a creative way to display art. The... More

I live here in Port Angeles and love Webster's Woods (the outdoor display) and the Fine Art Center. Rotating displays both inside and out and it is always a fun trip with new things to discover!

Lovely woodsy walk, garden sculptures quite original...quiet, restful, with a nicely laid out small exhibition center of good quality art. Volunteer staff, no charge, so easy to get there and to park and wind your way in. This little town does seem to try to take care of its artists and art.

The art Center was closed in the middle of the afternoon or this might have been a higher rating. We did enjoy the walking outdoor trails with our dog and the primitive art there. Also there are a couple nice views and this part was free.

I didn't go in the building, but I really enjoyed wandering around the outside trails. You can just park in the parking lot right there, and venture into the woods. It was difficult at times to tell what was a sculpture and what wasn't - pieces of carved wood attached to actual tree pieces, and things like that. My fiancé... More
