First Friday at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum

Make sure to come over to the Hawai‘i State Art Museum after the Art at the Capitol festivities. First Friday in April offers an array of art forms from contemporary art to calligraphy and dance.

Under the evening sky in HiSAM's second floor courtyard, the talented Honolulu-based dance company Monkey Waterfall will perform two shows, scheduled for 7 and 8 p.m. Combining Asian and Western dance traditions, theatre, storytelling, masks and puppets, Monkey Waterfall en- chants children and adults alike.

In the Diamond Head Gallery, the brand-new exhibition accession 2014 showcases new acquisitions to the Art in Public Places collection. Come see your art in person!

Also joining us on April 4th is Shisui Hashimoto, Performance Caligrapher. A resident of Japan, Ms. Hashimoto regularly visits Hawai‘i and performs at schools throughoutthe state sharing her impressive inter-pretations of Japanese calligraphy as a cultural art expression.

The Hawai‘i State Art Museum, and the Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts would like to thank the Hawai‘i Opera Theatre for a beautiful First Friday in March. Members of the Mae Z. Orvis Opera Studio of Hawai‘i Opera Theatre, pianist Eric Schank, and Erik Haines delighted the crowd who braved the showers on March 7 to enjoy a won- derful night of opera.

Please join us in May when we cool down First Friday with music by the Black Reds. This small jazz group will turn the museum into the "Blue Note Club" of the Pacific.
