The art buddha seems to frequently coordinate my travel destinations with great art exhibits in the city I happen to be visiting. My latest trip to Oahu was no exception. The Honolulu Museum of Art is showcasing Art Deco Hawaii, the first major museum exhibition to present the Hawaiian view on the International Art Deco style; this was at its height in the islands from the 1920s to the 1940s. You cannot imagine my extreme happiness when I was told that photos were permissible without the use of a flash; no problem, the lighting in the rooms was perfect. I went mid-week and there were two other people there that hurried through, so in essence I had a private viewing. Heaven to linger over each work.
I’ve placed a small number of the photos I took in a gallery format, please click on any photo to enlarge.
I will show you around the lovely museum courtyards in future posts, as well as a few more gallery photos.
