HAWAI‘I: Change & Continuity includes 130 artworks from the Art in Public Places Collection of the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, and tells a story of the past, examining the overlapping influences of nature’s bounty and human impact on a fragile environment.

As you walk through the exhibit, you will see art that reflects on the forces of nature and man’s intrusion. Relevant quotes are placed on walls to help the viewer understand the meaning.

“Hopefully the exhibition will express something of what this place is like. What Hawai‘i is like,” exhibit designer Tom Klobe said. “It is important for us who live here and people who are visiting to understand.”
