Haleakalā National Park is displaying art from its museum archives in a special exhibit at the Headquarters Visitor Center located at the 7,000 foot elevation.

Original paintings and artwork includes The Demigod Maui Snaring the Rays of the Sun and Haleakalā Crater by Paul Rockwood, several watercolor paintings by Bruce McGrew (the park’s first artist-in-residence,1970s), and Sliding Sands, a collage by Natalie Westbrook (artist-in-residence, 2013).

The exhibit runs opened on Friday, Nov. 8 and runs to Dec. 2, 2019.

Art supplies will be available to visitors of all ages at the Headquarters Visitor Center during this special temporary exhibit.

“Whether their work is shaped by nature or by history, artists have long been inspired by this special place,” said Jin Prugsawan, Chief of the Division of Interpretation and Education. “We hope you will come to Haleakalā National Park to find inspiration, view the special exhibit, and create your own original work of art,” she said.
