He Makana: The Gertrude Mary Joan Damon Haig Collection of Hawaiian Art
Oct 15 - Dec 23, 2017
He Makana, meaning “a gift,” is a distinguished collection of paintings, prints, and traditional art forms of Hawai‘i from the 1930s-1970s that capture the history and nostalgia of old Hawai‘i.
Among the treasures to be seen are paintings by three giants of early- 20th century island painting: Lionel Walden, D. Howard Hitchcock, and Madge Tennent.
This exhibition was gifted to the state of Hawai’i, and is traveling to the Schaefer International Gallery from the Art in Public Places Collection, courtesy of Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.
