Sunday is Mother’s Day so it’s time to have a one-on-one chat with you. Yes, you: Mom of the year. Your special day is coming up, and it’s well deserved. While the children stress about the perfect gift, we are here to help you relax, make planning simple, and spoil yourself silly.

When you’re overwhelmed with gifts
To help you celebrate your special day, the Museum Shop  and Spalding House Shop offer a 10 percent discount for guests. For Supporting-level members and above, that discount will be added to the member discount they already receive.

We have been recommending beautiful accessories from the Museum Shop for weeks now (exhibits A and B), so you might be getting jewelry! Be prepared for the potential onslaught of necklaces, bracelets and earrings, with this beautifully crafted cedar-lined koa jewelry box by local craftsman Alan Wilkinson. $230

Art strolls
Did you think we, as an art museum, would not suggest taking a look at our art? After enjoying your brunch, you can see our latest exhibitions such as Shahzia Sikander: Parallax, Artists of Hawai’i 2017, and the newly reinstalled Arts of Hawai’i Gallery. If your day will be at Spalding House, take a stroll through HOMA Select and enjoy a few of the best pieces in our collection.
