PAʻI ARTS CENTER
The PAʻI Arts Center is PAʻI Foundation’s vision of an art gallery and performing arts complex which will open in 2019 at the Ola Ka ʻIlima Artspace affordable artists housing complex in the Kakaʻako district of Honolulu.
The new PAʻI Arts Center in Kakaʻako project is to preserve and perpetuate Native Hawaiian arts and cultural practices for future generations by establishing sustainable, creative art spaces on the Island of Oʻahu, for Native Hawaiian artists and cultural practitioners to create, practice, display, showcase, and market Native Hawaiian traditional and contemporary arts; and to open for public gallery and exhibition operations in 2019. The new PAʻI Arts Center at Kakaʻako are creative spaces that will include street level art gallery and mezzanine art gallery spaces, and office/classroom suite; and a performing arts space (Studio A), which can be split into two smaller performing/work studios (Studio B & C when utilized separately). For larger culture and art exhibitions, the performing arts space can be used as supplemental art gallery space.
