All kinds of people and groups come together on May 20 to raise money for our Art to Go outreach program. If you head to Whole Foods Kahala that day, you’ll find 10 artists custom painting Organik Tshirts. Wearable art!
Professional artist wrangler Waileia Roster (thanks for all your help!) has roped a great roster of talent. Half of the artists are represented by the 9th Wave Gallery—Hilton Alves, Patrick Parker, Shannon O’Connell, and Kyox Rust. Joining them are “Draw the Line” regulars (and noted island artists) Jamie Allen, Solomon Enos, Ryan Higa, Carl Pao, Cade Roster, and Lauren Roth. Artists, the museum salutes you and are so grateful for your tireless support of us and our programs.
The fundraiser is part of Kahala Mall’s third annual Shop Local event. From 11am to 2pm you can meet local Whole Foods Market vendors such as Kaiulani Spices, Kona Red and Lei Fresh. They’ll be situated throughout the mall and offering samples. Mana ‘Ai will give a poi-pounding demonstration from 1 to 2pm. You can enter a free drawing to win dinner for two at Hoku’s (they’ll be at a booth in front of Kahala Kids). And if you present them with $125 worth of receipts time-stamped between 10am and 5pm that day, you’ll get a free Kahala Mall Shop Local tote.
The custom-painted organic-cotton Organik Tshirts are $25 for kids sizes and $38 for men’s and women’s styles.
