The ARTS at Marks Garage - MARCH 2018 Update

The ARTS at Marks Garage

With support from the Hawaii Tourism Authority, we've begun our monthly Mo'olelo series that will feature our Hawaiian ohana sharing personal stories on a given theme, on the thirdThursdayof each month. The theme this month is "Mo'olelo" itself!

Honest story, whether expressed with words, song, images, and any form of art and communication is as close as we can get to truly experiencing one-another. Personally, I think it's the path to ending cruelty and promoting peace in our world (how can you seek to harm someone if you truly understand their story?). Why not enjoy the story with a glass of wine and your downtown community of friends in your favorite artistic home in Honolulu!

We're grateful to the Tourism Authority for supporting this wonderful, exploratory program and hope you will come and enjoy the experience with us!
