Reflecting Hawai‘i offered a window into our island home. These works urged us to witness nature’s miracles, see the play of light and shadow, and hear the paniolo talking story. They displayed local-style humor, reverence for the land and beauty in the every day. Through them, we felt life’s rhythm, observed cultures intermingling, and taking part in human connections as experienced only in Hawai‘i.
Composed of two parts, Reflecting Hawai‘i featured 14 works acquired through a call-for-artworks and 19 photographs from the Art in Public Places Collection.
