According to Honolulu Museum of Art, “Art Deco manifested itself in Honolulu and its environs as a schematized visual language based on the natural beauty and fabled past of the islands. As such, it served as a motivating source for modernism in the fine arts and a sustaining mode for constructing “paradise” for the tourism and advertising industries.”
HILuxury is an honored sponsor of the eclectic exhibition highlighting a local take on an international art form. Celebrate a rich representative of paintings and sculptures with a regional aesthetic at Art Deco Hawai‘i, on display from July 13, 2014 through January 11, 2015.
Featured artists: Eugene Savage, Robert Lee Eskridge, Cornelia McIntyre Foley, John Kelly, Genevieve Lynch, Lloyd Sexton, Madge Tennent and Georgia O’Keeffe. For more information, visit the Honolulu Museum of Art website.
