The Native Hawaiian arts community is growing in strength and diversity, as exemplified in Maoli Arts month celebrations over the last several years.  Now, in its eight year, Maoli arts month, or MAMo, is looking to the future.

Maile Andrade’s show, 'Ike Loloa: A Long Insightful Journey, continues through October 7, 2013

The Native Hawaiian Arts Market takes place under festive tents on the Museum’s Great Lawn.  Thirty to forty artists from Hawai’i island, Kaua’i, O’ahu, and perhaps even Ni’ihau, will be there with their creations. Enjoy food, fashion, music, and hands on activities. It takes place Saturday and Sunday, May 25-26, 2013 at the Bishop Museum, 9 am-5 pm.
