KULA – From now until Dec. 2, Haleakala National Park is displaying art from the museum archives in a special exhibit at the Headquarters Visitor Center at 7,000 feet.

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

Art supplies will be available to visitors of all ages during this special temporary exhibit.

“Whether their work is shaped by nature or by history, artists have long been inspired by this special place,” said Jin Prugsawan, chief of the Division of Interpretation and Education.

She added, “We hope you will come to Haleakala? National Park to find inspiration, view the special exhibit and create your own original work of art!”
