Haleakalā National Park features artwork from its museum archives in a special exhibit at the Visitor Center located 7,000 feet above sea level.

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

The exhibition opened on Friday, November 8 and will run until December 2, 2019.

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

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