The town of Lahaina on Maui, has gained a reputation as a art mecca with dozens of art galleries lining famous Front street. In fact, Lahaina has more art galleries per capital than any other town in America, earning the title of “The Art Capital of the Pacific” In these galleries, hundreds of artists showcase their diverse works of art including ceramics, paintings, scrimshaw, photography and much, much more.
The galleries are open throughout the week but the best time to visit is Friday nights when Lahaina puts on its Art walk. Between 7pm-10pm every Friday, the galleries open their doors and encourage the public to come mingle with the artists, drink some wine, eat a little food and listen to music.
Pick up your free map at the Lahaina Visitor center and then head over to the old Lahaina Jailhouse. This historic building houses the longest running art gallery on Maui.
Best of all, all of this is just steps away from our two beautiful Lahaina Maui vacation rentals. http://www.mauiparadiserentals.com/index.html
