The Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (Chinese: 香港視覺藝術中心) is located in Hong Kong Park, at 7A Kennedy Road in Central, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong. It was opened by Leung Ding-Bon, then chairman of the Urban Council, in 1992.

The main aim of the centre is to support the local art creation. The centre was restructured from an early 20th-century building (Cassels Block, former barracks for married British officers, of Victoria Barracks), in order to provide an area and facilities for local artists in order to enhance their creativity. A lot of modern artifacts and sculptures can be enjoyed in this centre.

The historic building is listed as a Grade II historic building.[1] Coordinates: 22°16′36″N 114°09′34″E / 22.27680°N 114.15933°E / 22.27680; 114.15933
