Volcano Art Center Sculpture Garden

The Only Sculpture Garden In The State!
Garden Description

Volcano Art Center (VAC) is proud to display Hawai`i Island’s first outdoor sculpture garden. The garden is located at VAC’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village and provides a unique space for Hawai`i’s talented sculptors.


The dynamic interplay of sunlight, mist and rain that is Volcano’s variable weather, against a backdrop of old growth `ohi`a and koa rainforest, creates the ideal setting for outdoor sculpture. Inspired by the unique nature of Kilauea, artists’ creations are enhanced with a sense of place.

The venue itself is a landform sculpture. Under the direction of landscape architect, David Tamura, the once lawn-covered backyard of Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani administration building has been transformed into an inviting, walkable exhibit space.

Sculptures are available for purchase online at
