Last month forty thousand Hawaii Tribune Herald readers voted the East Hawaii Cultural Center “Best Gallery of East Hawaii”! Emblematic of our new identity within the community is the great success of our First Friday events, where hundreds gather for dancing, celebration, food and music in surreal evenings on the front porch of the Center.
Registration for PSBN Symposium Presenters
The 2016 Pacific States Biennial North American (PSBN) printmaking symposium is free for artists and the community to attend. We ask that presenters please register here so we can better promote our upcoming symposium events!

2016 (first half of the year…)

The East Hawaii Cultural Center has been at the beating heart of our community culture on the Big Island for four decades.

When the current Board Chairman asked me to take over running the venue a month ago, I was excited and daunted.
