Built in 1954, the Tennent Art Foundation Gallery is a seemingly windowless rectangular concrete masonry building with a roof formed by four transverse concrete vaults sited on the steeply sloping sides of Punchbowl. The walls have a thin coat of stucco painted pink while the structural columns are delineated in white. Tennent Art Foundation Gallery is significant as the only site and built environment that is clearly associated with Madge Tennent, one of the best known artists in Hawaii. The building was designed by noted Hawaii architect Vladmir Ossipoff.
