Lahaina Arts Society The Lahaina Arts Society was formed in the 1960s by a group of Maui artists who used to hold informal exhibitions along the seawall and in the park next to the Pioneer Inn. After raising money from 10 local couples, the group established a gallery in Lahaina’s old courthouse building and, later, a second space downstairs. Today, the nonprofit continues to be the gatekeeper for new artists on Maui, operating two galleries, holding regular art fairs, and teaching free weekly children’s art classes. Head to one of the fairs, now held in front of the Lahaina Cannery Mall on weekends, to shop fine art, listen to live music, and watch hula dancers sway in the sunlight, or swing by the galleries to browse what’s new from your favorite artists.
