Honolulu Hawaii Art

The Honolulu Art Museum, Hawai'i, houses some of the most important works of art in the history of Hawaii and the United States.

Special exhibitions of international stature are presented by the Honolulu Art Museum, Hawaii and its partners in the United States and abroad. The collection includes more than 1,000 works of art from the United States and around the world and includes important collections such as paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, ceramics, glassware, textiles and other objects. Other collections include Hawaiian art collections documenting the history of Hawaiian art, as well as collections from other countries and cultures.

The museum offers a wide range of educational programs for students from kindergarten to high school. The art school offers courses for adults and children, and many schools offer advanced learning opportunities oriented towards arts and crafts. We also offer the Art Bento Program, which brings artists to schools and allows students to visit the Hawaii State Art Museum on a field trip. This project includes a poster project at the Honolulu Museum and offers exciting lessons aligned with the common standards of deep learning through art.

We also send families to the galleries on the gallery hunting activity sheets to find certain artworks that focus on a theme.

Next to the counter hangs a flag of the Tino Rangatiratanga United Tribes, representing the New Zealand indigenous movement. On the floor is a woven flax mat, and visitors are asked to take off their shoes. Shell carvings can also be found on the walls of the gallery and on a wall in the lobby.

In terms of gender, race, and geography, the Honolulu Biennial has reached a level of diversity that is rare at international art events that are disproportionately white, Western, and male. Of the 47 artists and collectives featured in Honolulu, nearly all are women, and the majority are of indigenous descent. They come from everywhere, from Japan to Mexico to Bougainville, but almost half of them are born women. The gallery reflects Hawaii's changing life and landscape, as well as its changing artistic traditions, as the island's communities grew and became less isolated in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

In October 2002, the museum opened a new gallery that served as the home of the first annual exhibition of the Honolulu Biennial, which began on November 6, 2002. In February 2005, it opened the Asian Painting Conservation Studio and in December 2005, the renovation work on the Western Art Gallery was completed. The women were given a charter from the territory of Hawaii to further catalog the collection, and in November 2006, in partnership with the University of Hawaii at Manoa, they were given the charter for the Hawaii Museum of Contemporary Art, located in Makiki Heights. These include galleries, a café, sculpture gardens, a museum shop, an art gallery and an exhibition space.

Located above the city of Honolulu, it is one of the largest and most prestigious art museums in the United States and the world.

The Holt Gallery also houses works by Jule Holt, Howard Hughes, Georgia O'Keeffe and other prominent artists. It offers a variety of traveling exhibitions featuring works by artists from Hawaii, the United States, and around the world, covering a wide range of subjects including photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, photography, and more. There will also be temporary exhibitions of Hawaiian art by artists such as Paul Kahanamaki, Pat Patch, Damon Kamehameha III and many others. A collection of more than 1,000 works of art from the museum's collection is also available.
