A new exhibit at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum in downtown Honolulu

Through a selection of works from the Art in Public Places Collection of the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, this exhibition explores the various ways that artists play with scale, and how this in turn affects the viewer’s responses and understanding.

The opening reception is free and open to the public.

The museum cafe, Artizen by MW, will feature a special First Friday menu and the museum gift shop, HiSAM Gallery Shop x MORI will be open. The Friends of the Hawai‘i State Art Museum will be hosting a bar with wine and beer. The ground floor Sculpture Garden will be open for the evening.
