Lonely Planet review
This arts centre is a sprawling complex in the eastern part of Denpasar. Established in 1973 as an academy and showplace for Balinese culture, its lavish architecture houses an art gallery with an interesting collection, but few performances or much else most of the year.
From mid-June to mid-July, the centre comes alive for the Bali Arts Festival , with dances, music and craft displays from all over Bali. You may need to book tickets at the centre for more popular events.
