He Alo A He Alo: Face to Face, Visions & Portraits of Hawai‘i
May 2, 2008 – September 2009
The exhibition featured intimate works of art that captured some of the essence of our Hawai‘i community by honoring the subjects of the portraits and the work of the artists. A few pieces included in the exhibit, all from the Art in Public Places Collection, were a portrait of the late art patron, Phyllis “Dobson” Hume Spalding by Mexican artist Diego Rivera; a formal portrait of Hawaiian Kumu Hula Master Rosalie Lokalia Montgomery by artist Willson Y. Stamper; and a photographic portrait of Madge Tennent.
