At last month’s meeting, the museum’s board of trustees honored Charles R. Wichman with the status of Emeritus Trustee. For almost half a century, Charlie has been a steadfast supporter of the arts in Hawaiʻi. In 1977, he joined the Honolulu Museum of Art as a trustee, serving for almost 41 years—36 of those as vice president. Among his many accomplishments, he is most proud of establishing the Curator of the Arts of Hawaiʻi Endowed Fund to provide fiscal assistance for the curatorial position, which makes it possible to share exhibitions like Moloka’i Window (on view through Sep. 16) and the upcoming Ho‘oulu: The King Kalākaua Era (opening Sep. 13). Charlie also created the William Harrison and Mary Sophia Rice Fund to support the acquisition, conservation, and research of visual arts of Hawaiʻi for the museum. The Rice Fund was named in memory of his great grandparents—our founder, Anna Rice Cooke, was Charlie’s great aunt.
