Committed to Artist Since 1953

Art On The Zoo Fence is a non-profit group of local artists that was established in 1953. The City & County of Honolulu recognizes Art On The Zoo Fence as an Art Mart, meaning they only sell and display two-dimensional (2D) artwork work that is primarily paintings in oils, acrylics or watercolor, and photography. Artists often sell original paintings and prints.

Art On The Zoo Fence is committed to promoting and supporting local artists and their work. We believe that art is an essential part of our community and culture, and we strive to provide a platform for artists to showcase their talents and connect with the community.

Our mission is to:

  • Provide a vibrant and accessible space for local artists to display and sell their work
  • Foster a sense of community and appreciation for the arts
  • Create opportunities for artists to develop their skills and connect with other artists and art enthusiasts
  • Educate the public about the importance of supporting local artists and the value of the arts in our community
  • Contribute to the economic and cultural vitality of our community by promoting the work of local artists

Our vision at Art On The Zoo Fence is to create a vibrant and inclusive community of artists and art enthusiasts in Hawaii. We envision a world where art is accessible to everyone, where creativity is celebrated, and where the power of art enriches our community.

Our ultimate goal is to create a sustainable and thriving art ecosystem in Hawaii, where artists can make a living from their work, and where the arts are valued and appreciated by all.

As a non-profit organization, we are committed to providing a platform for local artists to showcase their work and promote the arts in our community. Art On The Zoo Fence strives to bring people together to experience the beauty and diversity of art.

We believe that art has the power to heal, inspire, and connect people across cultures and backgrounds. By fostering a love for the arts in our community, we hope to create a more empathetic and compassionate world.
