Power Down the Open Road

101 Things to Do (Maui) - - Contents -

26. GO GALLERY HOP­PING Known as one of the Pa­cific’s premier art cities, LA­HAINA boasts more ART GAL­LERIES per capita than any other U.S. town. In­stead of sneak­ing into a gallery or two dur­ing the day to get your art fix, make a night of it. And the per­fect op­por­tu­nity—whether you’re hop­ing to recharge your cre­ative juices or want a fun date with your travel com­pan­ion—is to join lo­cals and artists alike for LA­HAINA’S ART NIGHT. Ev­ery Fri­day evening, more than two dozen art gal­leries open their doors to the pub­lic past reg­u­lar hours, pair­ing their col­lec­tions with EN­TER­TAIN­MENT AND RE­FRESH­MENTS. A lively gath­er­ing of ex­perts and en­thu­si­asts, Art Night al­lows vis­i­tors and lo­cals alike to meet some of the gal­leries’ artists, lis­ten in on mu­si­cal per­for­mances and take in a va­ri­ety of works. Gal­leries that par­tic­i­pate in this weekly event in­clude OLD JAIL GALLERY, run by non­profit LA­HAINA ARTS SO­CI­ETY; VIL­LAGE GAL­LERIES, Maui’s old­est gallery; and MARTIN

LAWRENCE GAL­LERIES, one of a chain of gal­leries around the U.S. that boasts sculp­tures and pop art. But don’t limit your­self to these great spots—there are nu­mer­ous gal­leries with all kinds of finds, (slang for “food”) grinds and in­ter­est­ing folk.

Maps of par­tic­i­pat­ing mer­chants and gal­leries are avail­able at the LA­HAINA VIS­I­TOR CEN­TER. 27. VISIT MAUI’S ARTS AND CUL­TURE HUBS Founded in 1994 as a place for the Maui com­mu­nity to gather, cre­ate and cel­e­brate its artists and cul­ture, MAUI ARTS & CUL­TURAL CEN­TER (MACC) is a suc­cess­ful venue that has done just that. Not only does the cen­ter host vis­it­ing mu­si­cians and per­form­ers, it also of­fers CLASSES, EX­HI­BI­TIONS of lo­cal artists’ works, along with HULA, DRAMA AND MU­SI­CAL PER­FOR­MANCES by is­land ta­lent. MACC is lo­cated at 1 Cameron Way in Kahu­lui, across the road from the Kahu­lui Har­bor be­tween Maui Com­mu­nity Col­lege and Keop­ualani Park. Call (808) 242-7469, or go to mauiarts.org or more in­for­ma­tion. MAUI THEATRE, lo­cated in his­toric La­haina Town, is also home to a many pro­duc­tions, and a Las Vegas-qual­ity show cre­ated es­pe­cially for Hawai‘i. So while you’re in the mood for art and en­ter­tain­ment, shake things up with The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll at BURN’N LOVE.
