Save the date! Teachers are cordially invited to an educators-only tour and discussion of Art Deco Hawai’i with curator Theresa Papanikolas on Monday, July 14 at 1:30 pm. There is no charge for this event, but space is limited, so mark your calendars and sign up for this special opportunity today!
Art Deco Hawai’i (July 3, 2014-January 11, 2015) is the first major museum exhibition to focus on the seductive Hawaiian take on the international Art Deco style, which flourished in the islands from the 1920s to the 1940s. Through works such as murals by artist Eugene Savage that were commissioned by Matson, paintings and prints by John Kelly and Madge Tennent, the exhibition will reveal how Art Deco got an island twist based on Hawai’i’s natural beauty and fabled past.
