The ARTS at Marks Garage - DECEMBER 2018 Update
December at The ARTS!
1159 Nu'uanu Avenue | Honolulu, Hawai'i 96817
Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday 12pm - 5pm
This holiday season has me feeling a bit nostalgic. 2018 has been challenging on many fronts, and time with family and friends is a precious commodity. We are rounding out our year at the ARTS with something for everyone. We hope you will join us and spend some time with family and friends, making some wonderful memories this December.
The whole family can visit the gallery for a heartfelt and beautiful show by Wolf and the Woman collective featuring photography & illustration work of their youth students, centering around what Pu'uhonua o Wai'anae means to them. The Hawaii Young Actors Ensemble will present "An Evening with the Bard."
And for our grown-ups, we will host a live taping of "Zap Nasty's Drunken Christmas Extravaganza" for ‘Olelo TV. Then, we will roll into the new year with the opening of "Rolling the R's," a play by acclaimed author and playwright, R. Zamora Linmark.
We hope to see you and your family this holiday season!
With aloha from all of us at the ARTS at Marks,
Program Director, The ARTS at Marks Garage
The Wolf & Woman Youth Showcase
Wolf & Woman is a freelance documentary media & arts collective made up of women, POC and LGBTQ+ creatives in Hawai'i. The collective was founded earlier this year and is run by Marie Eriel Hobro, a documentary photographer & filmmaker, and Caesar Caberto, a graphic designer & illustrator.
This gallery will showcase the photography & illustration work of our students and center around what Pu'uhonua o Wai'anae and/or the general Wai'anae area means to them. With this show, we want the kids to understand how powerful their voices are when they're telling their own stories and showing people how they see the world. Read more

Kailua Onstage Arts
December 28-30, January 4-6 & 18-20, 7:30 PM, Sunday Shows at 2 PM
Set in Kalihi in the disco years of the late '70s, when high school students hung posters of Scott Baio and Shaun Cassidy on the walls, read Teen Beat magazine, and listened to Peaches and Herb on cassette tapes. Edgar Ramirez, a Kalihi teenager "who looks like a Filipino John Travolta," is gay and faces down the taunts from his peers. Edgar and his friends Katrina and Vicente along with their classmates, dream, explore their sexuality, and struggle to define their ethnic identities in a non-linear, surrealistic, sometimes brutal story punctuated by the authoritarian voice of schoolteacher, Mrs. Takemoto, and the judgmental gossiping of Philippine-born friends Mrs. Cayabyab and Mrs. Arayat.
