Ka‘Ike O Ka Moana: Knowledge of the Ocean art exhibit
Honolulu Hale Courtyard, Honolulu, Hawaii
May 25 - June 9, 2016
I stepped into Honolulu Hale and sucked in my breath. It was beautiful. The staircases and the frescoes felt distinctly European. I found out it was built in 1928 and the interior was modelled after a building from the 1200s in Florence, Italy. No wonder!
The exhibit took up the entire main floor and I fell in love with many art pieces from my fellow participants. The art show is by invitation only and I was honored to be among them.
I’m deeply grateful to the sponsors for creating a showcase of artwork from artists in Hawaii that celebrates the ocean during National Ocean Month! For this show I chose an animal that Hawaii introduced me to when I first visited, with my husband, over a decade ago. Now, since we moved here, I spy them almost every time I go paddling and diving.
