Hana no ke Au Hou
October 6 - 26
This exciting exhibit features different forms of hana noeʻau but with contemporary twists. Artists were selected for their craftsmanship as well as their foresight to bring these practices into modern uses and interpretations. We are also fortunate to present kiʻi akua hulu manu from the recent cohort of Nā Akua Ākea - Moku o Keawe, Hilo.
In the Fountain Gallery is "O Ka Lele A Nei ʻAuna" a presentation by Ahuimanu. The exhibit dimensionalizes an oli created by the group to celebrate and give life to Hawaiʻiʻs native birds.
