Art in Public Places: It's Your Art

49060272-5a5b-4afc-8d63-87aae0d3028b.jpg

Our exhibits team was in Hamilton Library (University of Hawaiʻi-Mānoa) in December, refreshing the artwork on display. This set of five kapa panels by Pualani Lincoln Maielua were previously on display at the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum in the "Hoʻomau: The Perpetuation of Kapa" exhibit. The center panel, "Kau," characterizes midnight and the appearance of the Milky Way as well as the constellation Makaliʻi.
