Our exhibits team was in Hamilton Library (University of Hawaiʻi-Mānoa) in December, refreshing the artwork on display. This set of five kapa panels by Pualani Lincoln Maielua were previously on display at the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum in the “Hoʻomau: The Perpetuation of Kapa” exhibit. The center panel, “Kau,” characterizes midnight and the appearance of the Milky Way as well as the constellation Makaliʻi.

SFCA Curator Elizabeth Baxter worked with Hamilton Library Preservation Management Specialist Malia Van Heukelem to select artworks and installation locations.
