MISSION

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


HISTORY

The ARTS at Marks Garage has been in operation since 2001 as an 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.
