Gaya has a strong reputation for developing contemporary art on the island. A constant stream of exhibitions show modern art by locals and foreigners in high regard, such as German Peter Dittmar, Swiss Stephan Spicher, New Yorker Pablo Gentile, and Indonesian artists Alfi, Murni, Made Wianta, and Wayan Karja. Performance art, films, and other community activities are held here. The terrace bar and restaurant serves the goal of "a space that integrates life and art." Every Sunday from 11am to 1pm is a free art program for children of all ages taught by top Indonesian artists who donate their time.
