Koa Art Gallery

Koa Art Gallery

We are dedicated to showing the best of Hawai‘i’s fine art masters and contemporary artists of Hawai‘i. The Koa Art Gallery is a catalyst, bringing art and people together. It is a working visual art laboratory for the Kapi‘olani Community College campus and the community at large, serving as a learning tool and resource for creative excellence.

The Koa Art Gallery is dedicated to the belief that art is a powerful force, transforming individuals and communities, and encourages creative practice for everyone into daily living.

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls. – Pablo Picasso
