In 2015 we introduced to the community Maui Arts League, an organization focusing on visual fine arts and what it means to us. Initially two projects are envisioned: 1) a membership art organization with the goal to collectively learn about visual arts and 2) a project to build a visual fine arts museum in West Maui.
Maui Arts League
Founded in 1975 as the West Maui Cultural Council, the Maui Arts League is expanding into a fine arts membership organization, focusing on painting, sculpture, and photography.
Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational
Launched in 2006, this event is our flagship program and features 25 world-class plein air painters for a 10-day event on Maui every winter. Most activities are free and open to the public.
West Maui Fine Arts Museum
We are exploring the creation of a destination art museum to showcase the fine arts of painting, sculpture, and photography while building a permanent art collection. We plan to include arts education and experiences for all.
The Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational (MPAPI) is a week-long art event in Lahaina on Maui, Hawaii. It is always held the week including President’s Day. The 12th annual event will be held Saturday, February 18 through Sunday, February 26. 2017.
The event showcases 25 plein air artists and 175+ of their artworks. Learn more at the MPAPI website.
