Went to Ivuka a few years ago and found it teeming with different types of art, big selection and a few artists around..this trip I was pretty disappointed to find that the walls and selection were pretty sparse and the guy there was not helpful. Not sure what has changed in local artists/interest/community but not worth going back unless I... 更多
I stayed here for several nights (booked via Airbnb) Rooms: Comfortable and clean, with a fantastic host. Gallery: Really interesting, great to find a thriving local arts scene. Building: The whole environment is a work of art, with sculptures and paint abounding. Note: access is down some quite steep steps.
I went to Ivuka after visiting Inema Art Center, both are very close from each other. There are less things to see and do in Ivuka, comparing to Inema, but considering the distance between them it worth to spend one hour more and visit this center, specially to see the outside, which is very nice.
We found the Ivuka Arts Centre welcoming. The owner was helpful and very reasonable. Not only did we buy two small paintings to carry back on the plane, my friend commissioned a smaller painting of the one I purchased. I wish I had more wall space...

I was able to meet several of the artists in residence as they were working and I found this place to be very full of talent! It's small and intimate with friendly staff.
Fascinating art on the walls and floors adds the the interest and ambiance of the Centre and is a lovely welcome. Then you get to see the art on display and it is difficult not to spend money. I bought a really great piece.
Beautiful pieces of art made by very talented artists. As many have said it is a bit difficult to find but it's worth taking the time to find the centre :)
We had some free time in Kigali before our flight, so decided to search out this small arts collective. It was worth the effort...the manager, Charles, kindly showed us around and helped up appreciate the various artists and their work. We ended up purchasing a painting, and we were amazed at how quickly we received it in San Francisco.
Ivuka art center boasts beautiful African-inspired artworks by local artists. If I had some space at home, I would have loved to take one of the artworks home. In any case, it is a good place to visit and talk to some local artists, and get an impression of the art scene in Kigali.
