Public museum exhibits local artists

Hawaiian culture is expressed in various forms of dance, food, ‘ohana, and art. These are all celebrated at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum, located at 250 S. Hotel St., which showcases Hawaiian spirit and heritage as it is expressed in art. The museum supports many local artists, coordinates community events, and expresses for the whole community the essence of Hawaiian culture. In addition to its upcoming exhibition, Art in Public Places, the museum sponsors a regular series of programs: Live from the Lawn, Gallery Talks, and Meet the Artist. These are all great ways to get involved in the community, learn more about local culture, and meet new people. [More]
