To transform our community with the power of the arts, and establish HONOLULU's Chinatown as the creative capital of the Pacific.


The ARTS at Marks Garage is sixteen-year old artist-run, nonprofit community arts center that attracts over 45,000 annual visitors to twelve major multidisciplinary exhibits and over 150 performances, lectures, screenings, and workshops.

It is an incubator for over a dozen performance and visual arts groups, and offers creative classes for the neighborhood youth. The ARTS is a primary sponsor of the creative revitalization of the downtown-Chinatown area through neighborhood relations, street festivals, neighborhood maps, First Friday Honolulu, and other community celebrations.
