Contemporay Museum exhibits world

by Alicia Michioka, Business Manager

The Contemporary Museum in Makiki is unlike the traditional art museum. TCM showcases the worlds finest in the most interesting ways. Sculptures, pottery, paintings and photography are unusual and intriguing. The beautiful landscape of the Makiki museum is filled with color and the most unreal view of Honolulu. Of course any museum would not be complete without a gift shop and a café.

At the gift shop you can find a gift for just about any occasion, and at the café just one bite of the humus and pita is not enough. At the museum’s café you can dine either inside or out. While you eat foods such as hummus with pita bread, daily brochettas, garlic lemon shrimp, chicken breast on a baguette with brae cheese. The café is wonderful for any occasion, and even caters to large groups (with reservations). It is open daily until 3 p.m.

This museum is truly a piece of art, and the artists’ exhibits attracts crowds in the hundreds. TCM also hosts exhibits at the First Hawaiian tower downtown and at various sites on the island.

One of the exhibitors in the fall for TCM in Makiki is Enrique Martinez Celay, whose work will be on display from Aug. 24 to Oct. 21. Works from the collection of Laila Twigg-Smith will also be on exhibit at TMC in Makiki from Nov. 2 to Jan. 6. The TCM café in Makiki will also have a few exhibits in the fall. From June 5 to Oct. 14 the café will exhibit Journey: Recent Painting by Linda Fong. From Oct. 16 to Nov. 18 the exhibit will feature Metaphoric Menagerie VI. To finish the year of contemporary art, the café will have a Holiday Wreath Exhibition, from Nov. 20 to Jan. 20. TCM at First Hawaiian Tower will have a season-long exhibit from Sept. 14 to Dec. 12.
